Deployed new App on DO App Platform
Accessing the App generated an error on the browser
526 invalid ssl certificate
I fixed it by changed Cloudflare SSL/TLS encryption to Full instead of Full(Strict)
Which other settings are preferred in Cloudflare to support an app hosted on DO App Platform?

The https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/app-platform/#limits documentation says this:

App Platform apps cannot be routed through your own Cloudflare account and must instead use App Platform’s built-in CDN functionality.

  • That’s awful… Cloudfare is by far better than DigitalOcean CDN, I hope they will find a way to remove this limitation in the close future.

    • It looks to me like DigitalOcean App Platform is already partnered with Cloudflare and running behind their CDN - that’s what the certificate on my deployed app seems to suggest.

      I know from experience that Cloudflare doesn’t work if you try to put it in front of another Cloudflare, which would explain this limitation.

Seems like they’re already running it on Cloudflare using https://www.cloudflare.com/ssl-for-saas-providers/
