Peering connections

Manage peering connections to your VPCs

A peering connection connects a YugabyteDB Managed VPC with a VPC on the corresponding cloud provider - typically one that hosts an application that you want to have access to your cluster. A VPC must be created before you can configure a peering connection.

To learn about VPC networking in YugabyteDB Managed, refer to VPC network overview.
To learn how to create a VPC network, refer to Create a VPC Network.

Peering Connections on the VPC Network tab of the Network Access page displays a list of peering connections configured for your account that includes the peering connection name, cloud provider, the network name (GCP) or VPC ID (AWS) of the peered VPC, the name of the Yugabyte VPC, and status of the connection (Pending or Active).

Peering connections

To view the peering connection details, select a peering connection in the list to display the Peering Details sheet.

To create a peering connection, click Add Peering Connection. For details, refer to Create a VPC Network.

To terminate a peering connection, click the Delete icon for the peering connection in the list you want to terminate, then click Terminate. You can also terminate a peering connection by clicking Terminate Peering in the Peering Details sheet.

Peering connection status

If a peering connection is Pending, you need to complete the peering with the corresponding cloud provider. Refer to Accept the peering request in AWS or Complete the peering in GCP.

If you have an Active peering connection but are unable to connect to a cluster in the VPC, ensure that you have added the CIDR block of the peered application VPC to your cluster's IP allow list. For information on adding IP allow lists, refer to Assign IP allow lists.
