How to whitelist an RDS endpoint


I need to whitelist an RDS Postgres endpoint in my security group. But the form only accepts CIDR block, SecurityGroup ID or Prefix list. How can I work around this?

When you add the security group rule, choose Custom, then input the ID of the RDS's Security Group (sg-abcdefg)

In this way, you are whitelisting all instance that use that particular Security Group sg-abcdefg (Including the RDS instance)

To avoid over whitelisting, I would also suggest creating a dedicated Security Group for the RDS instance.
