Turbot now includes support for enterprise guardrails for Databases, including security hardening and user management.

MySQL, SQL Server and Redshift are all supported with consistent models for user access and permissions implemented across all these different database engines.

Here is how it works:

  • Users are granted login access to Databases by adding them to the DB/{User,Operator,Admin} roles in the account.

  • RDS instances or Redshift clusters are started using the standard AWS console or APIs.

  • Turbot detects the instance and automatically assumes control of the master user and password. Turbot then synchronizes users and group information into the database on a continuous basis ensuring appropriate access levels are maintained.

  • Users can login to the database using their standard Turbot password.

We’re incredibly excited about this new capability and look forward to your feedback and suggestions for improvements!
