This document describes how to connect to Seaplane Managed Global SQL (MGSQL). You can get access to MGSQL by signing up here.

Postgress CLI authentication

Managed Global SQL supports the standard login protocol of the Postgress CLI. For instructions on how to install the Postgresql client see postgresql.org. To connect with MGSQL run the following command in your terminal on any machine that has the Postgress CLI installed:

 psql -h sql.cplane.cloud -U <USERNAME> -d <DATABASE>

Replace <USERNAME> with your username and <DATABASE> with your database. Enter your password in the prompt that follows.

sql.cplane.cloud serves as the single entry point for MGSQL and routes you to the closests available node. MGSQL automatically optimizes node placement based on end-user traffic patterns and your business rules.
