Question

Is there a way to know why a job is failing ?

I just have this from a job which is continuously failing: Missing dependencies, incompatible versions, incorrect environment variables or app bugs.

Yeah, that’s great but why ? I don’t have anything more and I can’t debug this because App Platform don’t give logs for jobs.

Is there a way I could know what happenings there ?

I spend my entire afternoon and I still don’t know why I got this. This is running perfectly fine locally…

Here’s my job:

jobs:
  - name: user-migrations
    environment_slug: node-js
    run_command: npx nx run user-service:migration-run
    kind: PRE_DEPLOY
    github:
      branch: main
      deploy_on_push: true
      repo: adfinitas-app/doap-test
    instance_count: 1
    instance_size_slug: basic-xxs
    envs:
      - key: POSTGRES_HOSTNAME
        scope: RUN_TIME
        value: ${user-db.HOSTNAME}
      - key: POSTGRES_PORT
        scope: RUN_TIME
        value: ${user-db.PORT}
      - key: POSTGRES_USERNAME
        scope: RUN_TIME
        value: ${user-db.USERNAME}
      - key: POSTGRES_PASSWORD
        scope: RUN_TIME
        value: ${user-db.PASSWORD}
      - key: POSTGRES_DATABASE
        scope: RUN_TIME
        value: ${user-db.DATABASE}

npx nx run user-service:migration-run does typeorm migration:run under the hood. Does something in envs looks bad ? I tried with run_command: "true" and it works well, meaning it’s surely my command which is failing.

Hi @scorsi,

You can view the job logs by navigating to your app -> the Deployments tab -> click the Details link for the failed deployment -> select the job under “Deploy logs”
