API endpoint handler as user?

Hi all,

I have been playing around with Boundary, going through the first couple tutorials. One things that isn’t super clear to me yet is how I could make an API endpoint handler (i.e. the non-human that also needs to access a database in a private subnet) utilize Boundary.

It says in the docs that a users are “distinct entities that can be tied to authentication accounts”, which seems broad enough to encapsulate more than just “literal people”. That said, I’m not sure how I would get an application ask Boundary to proxy a postgres request; particularly where there might currently be an ORM library in use to write/retrieve data.

Is that not a part of the scope of this tool or release? If not, is it slated? I haven’t seen anything in the API that looks like something I could use to send a request against a target.

Apologies if I’ve missed something obvious.

Is this thread issuing the same case?
