Overview

We strongly recommend that even if you are trying out the software you secure your Matillion ETL in at least one (but preferably all) of the following ways.

  • Restrict using a Security Group
  • Set up your instance in a VPC
  • Enable Security
 

Fixing the issue

  1. Log into your AWS console.
  2. Find your instance of Matillion ETL and select it.
  3. in the the Description tab at the bottom of the page find Security Groups and click your assigned security group.
  4. Ensure the source matches an IP or IP ranges that you intend to use to access the product. You can add extra IP addresses as new rules.
  1. Log into your Google Cloud Platform account.
  2. Ensure you're on the correct project that contains the instance to be changed.
  3. Navigate via the upper-left main menu to Compute Engine→VM instances.
  4. Select the instance that exhibits the 'Publicly available' warning.
  5. Scroll down the page to find the subheadings 'Firewalls' and 'Network Tags'. 

  6. 2 things can cause the 'Publicly Available' warning on an instance: 
    1. Having 'allow http traffic' and 'allow https traffic' checkboxes on (ticked).
    2. Having the default Network Tags 'http-server' 'https-server'.
  7. To fix these, click the 'Edit' button at the top of the page.
  8. Under the 'Firewalls' subheading, ensure the checkboxes are deselected. Under 'Network tags', ensure that the default tags are removed. These tags should be replaced with at least one firewall rule of your own.
  9. Hit 'Save' at the bottom of the page
