Metabase application database as a Data source


We are running Metabase v0.47.2 with a Postgres instance as the application database.
Is it safe to configure the application database as a data source in Metabase?

Thanks! :slight_smile:


Yes, but you can only do if self hosting.

You should also ensure that if you do connect it, that it is tightly secured as you will find the database connection strings are in there in plain text. This could represent a serious security vulnerability if it got into the wrong hands.
