How can I add Redis as a component to my app in App Platform?


I would like to add managed Redis just as I can create a PostgreSQL database which is then updated to managed and immediately remains in my application components.

Is it possible to do this? How could it be done?

Hi @brunoMorel,

To Add Redis managed database as a component to App platform, you need to first create a Managed Redis database using the link below:

Once the Managed Redis database is created, you can add it to your app by using the Settings tab and choosing the database component option. The only change would be for you to choose ‘Previously Created DigitalOcean Database’ instead of ‘Dev Database’.

Here are a few other documentations that might help further:

I hope this helps!
