Great question, I also run a Telegram bot on App Platform (though mine is written in Go) and ran into this same issue.

App Platform expects some sort of service to exist which can be tested against using HTTP or TCP. Though Telegram bots are usually listeners so this healthcheck fails.

My solution was to start a small http server running on port 8080 that returns healthy and some recent stats for my bot. It serves as a healthcheck for App Platform to know my app is still running, and as a way for me to see some information about my bot while running.

Setting up a simple python http/tcp response should resolve this issue.

Hope that helps!
