Adding Promtail to App platform

I have a flask app deployed to App platform. I want to be able to forward logs to Grafana loki using promtail.

How can I go about doing this? Should I be adding another resource to the app?

Hey @ellls,

Currently, App Platform supports log forwarding to Papertrail, Datadog, and Logtail:

To configure log forwarding, go to the Apps section of the control panel, click on your app, and click on the Settings tab. In the Log Forwarding section, click Edit and then click the Add Destination button.

For native support for Promtail, the best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
