Question

How to disable health checks on app platform?

So Im trying to run a cron job inside a docker container built with a simple dockerfile setup as an app platform. However, building is always successful but I always get a failed deployment due to a health check error and then the docker container is stopped. How can I disable this health check or preventing it from stopping the docker container? Or is there any other workaround or better solution? Thank you in advance

Hello,

I believe that when creating your App component, you can specify the “Resource Type” to be a worker:

As workers can not accept HTTP requests, they are suitable for doing background tasks, just as in your usecase.

Hope that this helps!

Best,

Hi @SandyBlueGreenRaft,

I don’t think that’s possible.

Having said that, most probably the issue is coming from something small. It can be some mismatched ports or something equally small. Take this question for example:
