ToolJet can connect to PostgreSQL databases to read and write data.


Please make sure the host/ip of the database is accessible from your VPC if you have self-hosted ToolJet. If you are using ToolJet cloud, please whitelist our IP.

To add a new PostgreSQL database, click on the '+' button on data sources panel at the left-bottom corner of the app editor. Select PostgreSQL from the modal that pops up.

ToolJet requires the following to connect to your PostgreSQL database.

  • Host
  • Port
  • Username
  • Password

It is recommended to create a new PostgreSQL database user so that you can control the access levels of ToolJet.
