The EDB Postgres Service Broker for PCF allows developers to provision a database within an existing EDB Postgres database cluster using Pivotal’s App Manager for self-service. The database is automatically created and bound to the application allowing developers to focus on their code rather than on its infrastructure. Each service instance connects to a single database that is secure from other databases on the server.
When a developer binds a service instance to an application, the binding call provisions credentials and delivers them to the application. When a developer unbinds a service instance, the unbinding call disables the database user role if there are no other bindings.
When a developer deletes a service instance, the EDB Postgres Service Broker deprovisions the database and frees all resources.
