Public vs Private Data Sources

Chartio provides two methods of connecting to your database: Direct Connect and Tunnel Connect.

Direct Connect is the easiest method as it simply requires you to whitelist Chartio’s IP address (52.6.1.1) and enter your connection details on the connection page.

If your database is on a private network and you do not wish to modify any firewall rules, you can use an SSH tunnel to make an outbound encrypted request from your network to ours instead.
