Can I use 8base as my BaaS when using another external database?


New to 8Base. Is it possible to use 8Base as my BaaS if I already have a database (external) eg. DigitalOcean?

My understanding is that 8Base is all about AWS and probably for someone that doesn’t already have a database?

Please advise, thanks.

Hey Hani!

If you want to, you can use custom functions that fulfill requests to your other database and then have that be exposed on your 8base graphql API. Check out resolver functions here.

That said, it really depends on how you want to manage your project, as maybe would be easier to migrate certain tables/data over to 8base.

What are you working on?
