TLDR: How do I setup app platform so that my main service can do http calls internally to another container without it being exposed publicly?

My current application is composed of two containers, one that is exposed to /, and one that is a worker BUT receives http requests from the main container in order to work. I see that there’s no internal hostname/port for workers, so I need to instantiate it as a service, the problem is that this service isn’t supposed to be publicly exposed.

How do I do that?

Workers cannot be accessed directly by other services or workers. We have a feature on the horizon that would allow for private services that can be accessed within the apps internal network and not publicly, though I don’t have a timeline when this will be released.
