Health Check error when deploying hasura-graphql-engine

I am trying to deploy the Docker hasura-graphql-engine image via the DO App Platform. I am using the one from Docker Hub (, but I keep getting this error: Deploy Error: Health Checks.

I’ve read all posts on this forum about it, most of the time its due to an misconfigured port or host, but hasura-graphql-engine automatically uses port 8080 and I’ve configured the host to be (via HASURA_GRAPHQL_SERVER_HOST).

Does anyone know why this standard and popular image won’t deploy on DO App Platform?

That should be all that’s needed for the health check to work. If you look at your app’s logs, do you see any errors? It’s possible that the Hasura server is running into an issue and not starting the server as a result.
