I deployed Dataiku on an EC2 instance, it looks great!

Unfortunately, I can't connect to my Heroku PostgreSQL database because it forces the use of SSL.

How can I enable SSL for the PostgreSQL JDBC driver?

I have very little knowledge about servers beside ssh-ing into a machine.

I found this doc but I'm not even sure it's related at all: postgresql.org/docs/current/static/ssl-tcp.html
(here we just want the driver to connect through SSL not setup SSL for postgres I guess)

[Copy/Pasting the error message here to be referenced in Google when someone has the same issue: FATAL: no pg_hba.conf entry for host "....", user "...", database "...", SSL off]

You need to add the "ssl" property (in the connection page) and set it to "true"

Note that you also need either to properly setup client certificates (as instructed here: https://jdbc.postgresql.org/documentation/91/ssl-client.html), or, if you want to disable validation (although this negates part of the security), add another property:

sslfactory = org.postgresql.ssl.NonValidatingFactory

Many thanks for the quick reply Clément! That worked!
(I tried the easy solution, disabling validation)
