warning: error cloning submodules: entry not found

I have deployed “APP” in Digital Ocean.

I followed the steps mentioned in to add Git Submodule.

At root of the project, I have .gitmodules which contains

[submodule "src/helper/joiyyyyy"]
	path = src/helper/joiyyyyy
	url =

Note: Instead of https:// I am using git@gitlab

Also, I have enabled the Deploy Key in Git Sub Module on GitLab.

Still when deploying, I am getting warning

[joiyyyy] [2021-09-10 05:14:38] => Initializing build
[joiyyyy] [2021-09-10 05:14:38] => Retrieving source code to /workspace

[joiyyyy] [2021-09-10 05:14:43] => Using workspace root /workspace

Note: 3rd last line warning: error cloning submodules: entry not found.

Finally, the Deployment will fail, as Node is not able to import function from this Git Submodule.

Hey there!

Gitlab submodules are kind of a tricky setup in app platform right now.

For a bit more information on how to get those workings please see: Submodules Gitlab

Hope it helps! Nate
