How can I set up Digital Ocean Apps with custom Docker Arguments?

I am attempting to set up with the following commands:

docker network create nats

docker run --name nats --network nats --rm -p 4222:4222 -p 8222:8222 nats --http_port 8222 --cluster_name NATS --cluster nats://

How can I do this via DO apps? It seems to force me to use the default run configuration only.

Hi there,

I believe that it is currently not possible to expose multiple external ports on a Service.

For your use case I believe that a better fit would be to use a Droplet and install Docker on there.

That way you will have full control over which ports are being exposed.
