How to Get Started with PostgreSQL
The hardest part of connecting to PostgreSQL is getting the connection settings right. When connecting a new PostgreSQL account these are the fields you are presented with:
Host The IP address or hostname (db.example.com) of where your database instance resides. Make sure it is accessible from outside your network. We send out database connections from the IP addresses listed here.
Port 5432 is the default for PostgreSQL. Change if you run on a different port
Database Name of the database to read data out of.
Schema The schema inside PostgreSQL to search for tables.
Username Username with access to the database. We recommend creating a brand new Zapier-specific user with highly limited permission scope.
Password Similar to the username, make this a unique strong password (check out https://random.org). This password should not contain spaces.
Note: all fields are stored encrypted in our database. Of course, we have the encryption keys on hand but they are stored separately to minimize risk. Nonetheless, we recommend not hooking a production database to Zapier. Instead, set up an intermediary database to connect with Zapier then dump data back to your main production database using some out-of-band process.
