Websocket on Qovery Architecture

My app is using very simple websocket comms. It works perfectly in local, but on Qovery it won’t make a connection.

I’ve read that websocket has issues with modern load balancers and these types of layers.

Does websocket work on Qovery? Thanks!

Hi @eriksingleton, welcome to the Qovery community :slight_smile:

Qovery does not support other protocols than HTTPS today. But Qovery v2 (announced yesterday in beta) will support WebSocket. You can register for the beta if you are interested or wait for the final release for September 2021.

Thank you Roman. Hoping to hear back about my beta application soon. Thanks!

Hi @rophilogene :wave: In the current UI I do see advanced options but the only protocol I can choose is HTTP.

Is WS still on the table for the near future or rather postponed?

Yes it is still planned but I don’t have an estimated time at the moment. I will see with our product team

Cool, thanks for the uber quick response :+1:

Would really be a handy feature since the framework I am currently switching to (colyseus.io) heavily depends on WS.

Hi @rophilogene - any news on this would be much appreciated :pray:

Hi @hatala91 , from what I know, I don’t think it is yet supported. Poke @Florian_Lepont @Pierre_Mavro


It’s not supported yet, I let the product team prioritize it. By the way, if this kind of feature is really important for you, please add/vote for it: https://roadmap.qovery.com/


Much appreciated! I added a feature idea re. this to the roadmap: WebSockets | Frill.co

Thank you @hatala91 - we’ll prioritize this feature (which is an important one).

Hello @rophilogene, @Pierre_Mavro
Any workaround available for now so our Ruby 2.6.9 application is able to support websocket connections where our webserver is managed on Qovery?

Are we able to point an API gateway to our web server to manage the websocket connection?

Any third party product that we can use to accomplish this?
