The recommended way to connect to a database is by using a connection URI. When using a connection string, SchemaHero will pass all parameters through to the database driver, allowing you to have full control over the database connection environment.
For example, to connect to a Postgres database, you can deploy a Database custom resource like this:
apiVersion: databases.schemahero.io/v1alpha3 kind: Database metadata: name: my-pg connection: postgres: uri: value: postgres://username:[email protected]:5432/db_name
Covered in the next page is how to use a Kubernetes Secret to provide this connection string.
