Use Redis 6 with App Platform

Posted November 27, 2020 2k views

When attempting to add a newly-created Redis cluster to an App Platform app, I get the error:

"6" is not a supported REDIS database version

But it looks like it is no longer possible to create Redis 5 clusters. Am I missing something, or is there a workaround using spec.yaml? Or do I need to wait for App Platform to support Redis 6?

Hello! Thanks for your question. We are aware of this bug and have a fix in development. We hope to have a fix in place very soon.

The fix for this issue has been merged and Redis 6 should now work as expected. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello folks. I think the problem is still there. I’ve used the following config:

- engine: REDIS
  name: seatshop-redis
  version: "6"
  production: false 

After uploading the spec, I received the “6 is not a supported REDIS database version” error.
