PlanetScale API and OAuth applications

PlanetScale API and OAuth applications

Today, we are releasing a new way to manage your PlanetScale databases programmatically: The PlanetScale API.

The PlanetScale API (beta) opens up new ways to interact with PlanetScale through automation and other developer tools, like CI/CD, infrastructure as code, deployment tools, and application platforms.

In addition to the API, we are also launching OAuth applications in limited beta. OAuth applications alongside the PlanetScale API enable your users to interact with their PlanetScale databases from your application.

Google Cloud Provider support

We just introduced Google Cloud Provider (GCP) support for select GCP regions. GCP support is currently in beta, so some PlanetScale features are limited on branches and databases created in GCP regions.

For more information about limitations and supported regions, see our GCP documentation.
