Hi there,

Does your service crash during the deployment stage? Or does it crash when it tries to make the external API call?

If it crashes only during the API calls, what I could suggest here is to try and extend your app to add some additional logging so that you could see what actually happens when you try to do the API call and then go from there.

If it crashes during the deployment stange, this might be due to the health checks that come with web services. Have you tried following the steps from the documentation here:

Alternatively, if your app is not a web service, you can deploy it as a worker as per the discussion here:

Feel free to share more details about your setup and I will be happy to help!
