Operation check

What's good

If a problem occurs

Resume the current app

#Turn off maintenance mode
heroku maintenance:off -a Current app

#Keep the worker running (if any)
heroku ps:scale worker=1 -a Current app

If no problem occurs

App name change

Current account Current app name → Backup app name

New account Migration app name → Current app name

Transition end notification

(If necessary)


We recommend that you create a runbook and carry out rehearsals before moving to production. Pair operation is preferable to touching by one person.
