Failed to connect to RDS postgres DB when using storage encryption

  • Is this your first time deploying Airbyte?: Yes
  • OS Version / Instance: Amazon Linux (EC2)
  • Deployment: Docker
  • Airbyte Version: 0.38
  • Step: The issue is happening during docker-compose up
  • Description: We would like to connect Airbyte to an Amazon RDS Postgres DB which uses storage encryption. Setting up a connection works fine when storage encryption is turned off. However, Airbyte cannot establish a connection when encrypting the RDS DB instance. Does Airbyte support this and how can we connect Airbyte to an encrypted RDS Postgres DB? Thanks a lot in advance for your support :slight_smile:

Hello @Timo, welcome to the forums and happy to hear you’re trying out Airbyte!

From what I see, to enable storage encryption you need to use the AWS Key Management Service; Airbyte does not currently support external secret stores, but it is on our roadmap. Let me know if this helps, and if not - I’ll look into this further for you.

Hi, when connecting the postgres RDS to Airbyte, is the configuration automatically created (tables, schemas etc…) in that database?
I want to configure Airbyte in EC2 with autoscaling and that the configuration is saved in a common database for all instances.
Thanks :slight_smile:

Hey @natalyjazzviolin Is this been fixed ? I am yet not able to connect my encrypted RDS (KMS) . Let me know if there are any other ways for the same.
