1 minute read

Updated! For new IBM Cloud on 2019.06.24.

It works on my python project.

If you do not follow this settings, you would see like this.

setup

setup manifest.yml

If you’re app name is Shamanking, you must write same name in manifest.yml.

- name: Shamanking
  instances: 1
  memory: 128M

But your bot is not web app, so IBM’s health checker will turn it off in only 1 minute.

applications:
- name: Shamanking
  instances: 1
  memory: 128M
  disk_quota: 1024M
  no-route: true

And type like below on console.

ibmcloud cf set-health-check Shamanking none
ibmcloud cf push
