Configuring Service Connections for Play Framework

Page last updated:

Cloud Foundry supports running Play Framework applications and the Play JPA plugin for auto-configuration for Play versions up to and including v2.4.x.

Cloud Foundry provides support for connecting a Play Framework application to services such as MySQL and Postgres. In many cases, a Play Framework application running on Cloud Foundry can automatically detect and configure connections to services.


By default, Cloud Foundry detects service connections in a Play Framework application and configures them to use the credentials provided in the Cloud Foundry environment. Note that auto-configuration happens only if there is a single service of either of the supported types—MySQL or Postgres.
