Best approach for updating an Applications version on a schedule

I was wondering if there is a method for having an application which is not auto-deployed, but is deployed via a start/stop rule to rebuild using the latest HEAD of a branch on startup?

Is there a best practice for enforcing that the app is rebuilt every morning? Would that just be writing a custom lifecycle job?

Curious if this is a use case you all have supported previously or have thoughts on.

Hi @piuggi , excellent question. Thanks for asking.

In your case, I’ll definitely use a Job to force your app to be rebuilt every. But instead of a Lifecycle Job, I will use a Cronjob.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Create a project tooling (for example, you can give the name you want).
  2. Inside this project, you create an environment prod.
  3. Then you add a Cronjob app redeployer with the cron expression * 8 * * * to redeploy your app every day at 8 am. (be careful - it’s UTC, so you need to convert to the appropriate time)

Some things to consider:

Qovery API code example

Here are a quick example of how to use the Qovery Python client.

if __name__ == '__main__':
    configuration = qovery.Configuration(access_token='your Qovery API Token')
    qovery_client = qovery.ApiClient(configuration)

    # get my organization
    org = organization_main_calls_api.OrganizationMainCallsApi(qovery_client).get_organization('my-org-uuid')

    # get the name of my organization

I hope it helps. Let me know if you have further questions.
