Failing in enqueuing a job to Sidekiq due to InvalidURIError

I am in process of deploying a Rails 7 (Hotwire enabled) application using App Platform. This is my first time with both, Rails 7 and App Platform. Now when I am trying to delete a resource having active storage attachment I am getting following error in the logs:

[ActiveJob] Failed enqueuing ActiveStorage::PurgeJob to Sidekiq(xx_yyy_zzzz): URI::InvalidURIError (bad URI(is not URI?): "rediss://}")

(Obfuscated the URI here)

I am using a managed Redis DB as a component, and referring to it in the web service component using REDIS_URL environment variable.

I am stuck at this problem from quite a long time, any help would be appreciated.

Hi there,

It sounds like Rails does not like the ${REDIS_URL} format.

What I could suggest is to use the ${DATABASE_URL} environment variable so that you could then build your Redis connection string to match the required Rails format rather than using the ${REDIS_URL} env var directly.

Hope that this helps!
