How to Update App Platform App Spec via doctl

Hi, I am trying to add the option catchall_document: index.html to my app spec via doctl. However I recieve 500 server error evertime I run this command: doctl apps update <app_id> --spec ~/dev/.do/quiz-app.yaml.

doctl apps spec validate says my spec is valid. What am I doing wrong and why cannot update my app spec at all from doctl???

Hi @miccoh,

Usually this means that there is a validation error in the spec that is mis-categorized as a 500 error instead. Could you post the YAML that you’re trying to upload? Do you happen to have error_document configured as well? It’s mutually exclusive with catchall_document so you’ll need to remove it if so.

If you would like to, you can add the --trace option to doctl to print the full details of the request and attach it to a support ticket so that the team can take a closer look.

As for the doctl apps spec validate command, currently it only does basic validation around the YAML structure. We’re working on expanding the scope of validation checks that it performs, but currently it does not include all the rules.
