Connecting to Postgres with Monoid works as it does with most standard tools. To do so, navigate to Data Silos > New Data Silo from the left-hand sidebar, and select Postgres for the Silo type.


If you're connecting to a local Postgres instance after running Docker compose, you'll need to replace localhost with host.docker.internal

Creating a Postgres Silo

Enter the connection credentials for the Postgres DB. Monoid enables SSL connection as well; indicate whether this is necessary in the relevant part of the form.

By default, Monoid will connect to every DB. There are two ways to avoid this; you can either indicate DB's to exclude in the Exclude DBs section, or you can turn off Scan All DBs to connect only to the DB specified in Default Database.
