App platform configure BuildTimeouts

I have a rust based web service i’m attempting to deploy via docker. My build currently takes ~40minutes with no layer caching however the app platform build times out after 20. Right now I have to manually run the deployment phase twice and relying on layer caching for the deployment to succeed which is not ideal

It it possible to configure the timeout duration? Or upload to the app platform container registry directly from my CI?

Hey @nisht 👋

We’ve extended the build timeout from 20 to 60 minutes. We may also introduce the ability to configure this in the future, but for now this should help your situation. We also have updates coming soon that will increase performance of builds in general.

The bring-your-own-container feature you mentioned is on our near-term roadmap, so stay tuned for that as well.

Thanks for using the App Platform — happy coding!
