Question

App Platform: Dedicated healthcheck port unexposed externally

I can’t find in the documentation concepts section (https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/concepts/health-check/) whether I can define the health check endpoint to be set up in a dedicated port, separate from the main application port. As I would like the health check not to be accessible externally

Hi there,

To set up your health checks specific port, you can go to your App Platform -> Click on the app that you want to update -> then go to Components -> Click on your component and scroll down. In there you can create a health check endpoint within your app that you could use for the health check details:

Hope that this helps!

Best,

Bobby
