I’m interested in using App Platform to deploy my project back-end. This will include a Web Service and Managed Dbs. In addition, I also want to run daily processing jobs and it looks like I could tap into Functions for this.
It’s my understanding that DigitalOcean functions can be run on a schedule so, for example, a Go program to process and collect data runs every day at 2AM. However, when I look at DigitalOcean documentation for scheduling functions it says under Limits:
“Scheduled triggers are not yet available for function components deployed through App Platform.”
Does this mean if I have a Web Service deployed via App Platform and I want to add a Function to it, then I won’t be able to schedule it? Or am I not understanding the documentation correctly?
