Accepted Answer

To deploy a NestJS app, you’ll need to customize a few configuration options:

Config Value
Build Command npm run build
Run Command npm run start:prod
HTTP Port 3000

Because NestJS doesn’t use the $PORT env var, you will need to manually set the service’s HTTP Port to 3000.

The npm commands map to the default scripts provided by NestJS in package.json.
