EDB Postgres Service Broker for Pivotal Cloud Foundry
This documentation describes the EnterpriseDB (EDB) Postgres Service Broker tile for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF).
The EDB Postgres Service Broker tile registers a service broker on PCF and exposes a service plan on the Marketplace. Developers can provision a PostgreSQL database by creating instances of the service plan using Apps Manager or the cf Command Line Interface (CLI).
The EDB Postgres Service Broker provides a single service plan which provisions a PostgreSQL database on a shared PostgreSQL server.
When a developer creates an instance of the service plan, the EDB Postgres Service Broker creates a PostgreSQL database on the PostgreSQL server. 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 PostgreSQL database and deletes all resources.
