Accessing a Specific Region

Using the Web Dashboard

When using the web dashboard at https://my.scalingo.com, you will automatically be redirected to the region you have access to. If your account has access to multiple regions, a selection screen will be presented to let you chose which region you want to use:

You can also directly head to a region’s dashboard:

Using the CLI

If you use the CLI to manage your app, all commands now have the flag --region to specify the region you want to use. The region can also be globally set once with scalingo config --region <region name> or by defining the environment variable SCALINGO_REGION. The name of the region to use can be found with:

$ scalingo regions

Migrating Application Between regions

There is currently no automatic way to migrate an application from one region to another. An automatic procedure will be proposed in a couple of weeks. Most applications will be able to enjoy 1-click migration with their databases with minimal interruption. Waiting for it, here is the procedure to manually migrate an application from one region to another:

  1. Create and deploy the application on the new region,
  2. Provision all the mandatory databases for this new application,
  3. Copy data from the old database to the new one,
  4. Update the DNS record to point to the app deployed on the new region.
