Configuring Connected Environments for Private Access Cloud Sites

This page applies to Appian Cloud only. It may not reflect the differences with Appian Government Cloud.

Overview

Appian Cloud environments that only allow Private Access (i.e. inbound access enabled only through VPN or PrivateLink) require additional networking considerations in order to leverage Appian DevOps features such as Compare and Deploy Across Connected Environments.

The Connected Environments for Private Access Cloud Sites feature provides a simple-to-configure way to enable connectivity between two environments with Private Access. This is configured by enabling two way HTTPs traffic between your nominated environments. The HTTPs traffic between these environments will flow through the AWS internal network and will not traverse the public internet.

Architecture

The diagram below shows how HTTPS traffic would flow between two environments with Connected Environments for Private Access Cloud Sites enabled.

Prerequisites

Your elected environments must meet the following prerequisites to enable Connected Environments for Private Access Cloud Sites:

  • Your environments must be hosted in a commercial region.
  • Your environments must be running Appian 22.2 or above.
  • Your environments must be configured for Private Access VPN or PrivateLink.
  • Your environments must be hosted in the same AWS region.
  • Your environments must share the same compliance level (e.g. You cannot elect a non-PCI environment and a PCI environment to have Connected Environments).
  • Your environments must not be hosted in a Dedicated Customer Virtual Private Cloud.
