Alternatively, you can use the SSL-related files (ca.cert, cert, and key) and the port from the
For new projects on Astra DB, use a Cloud or Native driver. Java and Python are available as Legacy and Native drivers.
Legacy drivers should be used only if migrating an existing Cassandra application developed with a Legacy driver to Astra DB.
If you’ve enabled VPC peering, you can also Download External Secure Connect Bundle for use within your VPC peering.
The secure-connect-database_name.zip file downloads, which contains the security certificates and credentials for your database.
VPC peering is only available on Classic databases.
Sharing secure connect bundle
Although teammates can access your Astra DB database, it will not display in their list of available databases under My Databases in Astra Portal.
After you create an Astra DB database, you can grant access to other members of your team by providing them with the database credentials and connection details for your database.
Be careful when sharing connection details. Providing this information to another user grants them access to your Astra DB database and ownership capabilities, such as making modifications to the database.
For security, delete downloaded connection credentials after sending them to your teammate.
