Enable public access in VPCs

To enable public access for a service running within a virtual private cloud (VPC):

  1. Log in to Aiven Console and click your service from the Services page.

  2. On the Overview page of your service, click Service settings from the sidebar.

  3. On the Service settings page, in the Cloud and network section, click Actions > More network configurations.

  4. In the Network configuration window, click Add configuration options. In the search field, enter public_access. From the displayed parameter names, select a parameter name for your service type and enable it.

  5. Click Save configuration.

    The Overview page now has an Access Route setting inside the Connection information section with Public and Dynamic options.

  6. Click Public to see the public URL for your service.

The connection with the Dynamic option is not possible outside the VPC, while the connection with the Public option is accessible over the public Internet. IP Allow-List applies to all connection types (Dynamic and Public, in this example).


You can change the public_access settings without any service downtime.
