App Platform custom docker run arguments

I currently have an App setup on the App Platform, that automatically pulls changes from my repository and builds this. But I need to add extra arguments to the docker run command.

How can I achieve this?

I have spent hours trying to figure out how to write the custom docker run command. The documentation isn’t good in DigitalOcean.

Hello @ShawnRG

You can achieve this by deploying the app using Dockerfile or passing the custom run command while deploying the app. So, please make the changes in the run command accordingly.

Here is some documentation that might help you in understanding it:
