Deploy Error when deploying KrakenD API Gateway in App platform

Hi, I am new to DigitalOcean App platform. I am trying to deploy KrakenD API Gateway in App platform from docker hub [] during deployment i am getting this error message :

ERROR parsing the configuration file: ‘/etc/krakend/krakend.json’ (open): no such file or directory

I understand that I need to provide this json file before deployment, my question is, How to do that ? How can I create this file in this location before deployment in App platform ? Thank you!

You need to mount a volume containing the config file, pointing to /etc/krakend.

Docker Compose sample:


  • /path/to/krakend/config/on/host:/etc/krakend
