App Platform has limited support for Procfile currently. If you have a Procfile with a web command, it will be used as the Run Command for the component. You’ll notice that after selecting your repo and branch the web command will automatically be placed in the Run Command field.

You can always use the Run Command field to set the entrypoint you need.
