How can I run my docker Component in an App with the --privileged flag ?

We have an App which has two docker containers. We need to run docker with the –privileged flag in order to allow use of an s3 filesystem mounting module.

How would we get our container to be run with the –privileged flag or equivalent?

This functionality is not available on App Platform currently. If possible your app should use the S3 API directly.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Our dev team is discussion possible solutions that can be approached in the future.

Thanks for your response!
