Hi community! 👋

Quick update – I stumbled upon an amazing feature while reading one of the latest blogs on PostgreSQL with Kyma. This discovery is about to make your developer life a whole lot simpler. I'm talking about nothing less than hybrid testing using SAP's managed PostgreSQL offering (PostgreSQL on SAP BTP, hyperscaler option) ! 🚀🎉

PostgreSQL | PostgreSQL is now available on the Kyma environment

Here's how it works: by utilizing the allow_access property in your Service Instance parameters within Kyma, you can effortlessly whitelist an IP address for your PostgreSQL database. This setup grants you the convenience of utilizing the Service Instance for hybrid development (see CAP documentation). Wow! Isn't that a great feature?

For instance, you can seamlessly integrate it into your CAP hybrid profile using cds bind. It's a fantastic approach that saves you the hassle of running a Docker Container or own PostgreSQL database locally (though that remains a valid choice, of course)! 🛳🚀
cds bind postgresql -2 postgresql-db --kind postgresql-db --on k8s --for hybrid

Take a look at the blog post series linked above (especially part 3 describing this feature) and give it a shot with the free tier service plans today! Do keep in mind that, as of now, this feature is accessible for dedicated AWS regions and Kyma exclusively. 🌐🔗

I'm eager to hear your thoughts – do you think this will also significantly simplify your life as a developer? A big shoutout to silvia.pedroso  and the entire team for making this innovation a reality! 🙌👏

All the best,
