FlashDrive automatically keeps your app up to date when a new version is released under the same main version of your app.
The process is slightly different depending on your app type :
App deployed from code
When you deploy your app from a Git source you can specify a runtime version for your app using the Procfile. If a version is specified FlashDrive will always respect this setting and will not update your app automatically but a rebuild of the app will occur since security updates can sometimes be applied on older versions.
If you didn’t specify a specific runtime version, FlashDrive will automatically rebuild your app and apply the update.
This triggers a rebuilt of your app from your Git repository.
Marketplace apps are updated automatically by FlashDrive each time a new version is available and has been tested by our Operations Team. Usually, an update is applied automatically the same day a new version is published by the app developer.
Some apps are not updated automatically by FlashDrive :
- Docker apps : Docker apps are rebuilt only when you push a new version on Docker Hub or when you trigger manually a rebuild of the app. The docker is engine is kept up to date automatically by FlashDrive on a daily basis
