websocket app on DigitalOcean Apps PaaS

PaaS

I want to migrate one of my web app to DigitalOcean Apps PaaS.
This app is a web socket app.

I have a log on server to notify the client connecting the assigned PaaS node server/port.
if one PaaS node server has no any client connected, I hope to remove it.

How can I notify DigitalOcean PaaS add & remove the Apps node?
Is there any API for coding?

Thanks

Hello @kavagames

Yes, we do have an API to scale the app based on your requirement. The endpoint for the App Platform API is https://api.digitalocean.com/v2/apps you can consult the API documentation for details on how to send native HTTP requests that are properly formed to make API calls.
