How to redirect traffic from www to root domain on app platform?

I deployed my django app successfully on App platform. I added my root domain. The challenge I have is users who access web app with www included are shown a cloudflare page: ERROR 1: DNS RESOLUTION ERROR. I added www as a CNAME record but things are not working. Digital ocean support agents have not been helpful on this

Hello, App platform can not redirect the www request to non-www request. Either you will have to configure the www domain in your App like you have set up the root domain or you can set up and droplet with Nginx or apache where you can redirect the www domain to the root domain.
