👋 hey @mihairmcr7

App Platform does not have an services that handle explicit queues or background jobs.

However we have a bunch of options for implementing these to fit your needs:

  • Worker components can continuously monitor and work on jobs
  • Internal Services are services that are not exposed to the public internet but can expose internally to other services and operate like a worker
  • Functions can handle running tasks as long as 15 minutes and be trigger via http call
