How to start Symfony messenger consume on App Platform

Hello, I deployed a Symfony application on App Platform and I would like to use the messenger system for sending mail asynchronously. To do this, I have to launch a command inside the “server” and that it restarts during a crash. Has anyone done this before? Thanks in advance. Julien

What you could do is use a Worker component:

This allows you to run background processes and you can just specify your command in there.

Let me know how it goes!



Hi @contactSnorkler,

I haven’t worked with Symfony messages, but I think Messenger: Sync & Queued Message Handling section helps you to know limit consuming, async/queued and dispatching messages, as well as minimum requirements.

To learn more about it, you could read the Messenger component docs.

I hope this information helps you,
