websocket app on DigitalOcean Apps 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?

Hello @kavagames

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