Keep in mind that the V1 documentation is no longer maintained, although we do answer common questions.

Platform URL Updates

Now that the Projects module is no longer in beta, the pattern for the platform URLs has changed and must be as follows: prefix-suffix[.subdomain].domain.com.

Saagie will contact your platform administrator to perform this change.

For more information, see Creating DNS entry.

Persistent Storage Size Configuration Option for Apps

You can now configure the persistent storage size (between 64MB and 128MB) when creating your apps.
Persistent storage stores an app’s data between instances.

The storage size cannot be changed once the app is created.

Prometheus Monitoring

You can now monitor various Saagie metrics with Prometheus. These metrics are exposed via Saagie's HTTP API, allowing Ops teams to centralize and visualize them through Prometheus' multiple graphing and dashboarding modes.

You can enable or disable this exposure during the Saagie installation process.
