connecting to database on RDS instance

I would like to connect to an RDS instance in uswest-2 and run a query for seed data.  I should be able to do  this with a database target on a CT instance in the same AWS region as our RDS instance, correct?   I tried recently, and I was not able to connect, but I am unsure which region our CT instance was brought up in.

Re: connecting to database on RDS instance

Hi Aaron,


Most of the CloudTest instances are in the East region. As per the specific region -1, -2, etc., you need to check where the CloudTest volume is in CloudTest Manager. If you don't have access to CloudTest Manager, you should contact somebody in your team that does.


In any case, it might be that you need to whitelist the CloudTest IP so that the CloudTest can connect to your DB RSD instance.
