Laravel, as many other PHP frameworks, has command line tools to migrate database schema up and down.
It is not clear how to use those schema migration command line tools with the DigitalOcean App Platform. For instance:
If horizontal scaling is used, it is not clear which container should run the migration command, and how to make it so that the migration is executed once only
If the service is rolled back, how to make it also automatically roll back the database schema? Or at least to restore the database to the previous state at the point in time before the update happened?
Any additional comments / examples on database schema migration and rollback with the App Platform?
