Squid's integration feature allows you to connect your own databases or endpoints, and make them accessible to your client application while maintaining security through Squid's security rules.
Integrations are a powerful capability because they enable you to connect to existing databases and endpoints without migrating them to Squid.
Additionally, Squid can work alongside existing systems that already read or write data from these databases or endpoints. This flexibility makes Squid easily adoptable, allowing it to be incrementally adopted while working alongside existing systems and processes.
Every integration has a unique ID, which is used to identify it. You can find the ID of an integration in the Squid Cloud Console. This ID is used when connecting to the integration using the client SDK application or using the Squid Backend SDK.
To connect an integration, you can navigate to the Integrations page in the Squid Cloud Console. From there, you can choose your integration and follow the instructions to connect it.
If you cannot find the integration you are looking for, please ask for it in the Squid Cloud Console using the "Request integration" button.
Squid's IP address
To prevent denial-of-service attacks, brute force password attacks, and other forms of malicious activity, some providers recommend restricting your network to allow access only from specific IP addresses. This procedure is commonly known as allowlisting, and it limits access to your resources by only accepting connections from a specific list of endpoints. Refer to your resource provider to determine if you need to add Squid's IP addresses to your access list. If allowlisting is required, use the following Squid IP addresses found in the Squid Cloud Console.
