Validation for App Spect “Template”

I’m having some trouble getting the App Platform to recognize the format of my .do/deploy.template.yaml file. My in-progress template lives here.

While a deployed app’s spec seems to have all the resources (envs, services, databases, etc.) at the top-level, the “template” file requires that they be nested beneath a root spec key. This much makes sense (I guess?), but as far as I can tell, the setup wizard doesn’t really acknowledge anything within it.

It automatically detects the right type of application, but doesn’t pick up any additional Components, the declared databases, or prompt for the global envs I’ve defined.

The app spec reference is clear, but the deploy button how-to doesn’t quite fill in the gaps—or more to the point, doesn’t offer any more advice on how to deploy templates that define more than just a web Component.

Furthermore, the doctl apps spec validate .do/deploy.template.yaml appears to only support live schema, not the template structure, nor does it confirm what Components would be created.

Any help or (complex) examples is appreciated!
