I just deployed a static website on the app platform, and I would need to temporarily disable/pause it without destroying the app. Is there a way to do that? Thanks!

We don’t currently support pausing an app, but your feedback on it is definitely helpful. We may support this in the future, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, you could grab your app spec YAML from Settings -> View Spec, destroy your app, and then recreate it with the same app spec using doctl later when you want to revive your app. The doctl command would look like this:

doctl apps create --spec app.yaml
