Avoid a region


Is there a way to avoid a region without using volumes?
In our case, an instance in maa gets created as backup, but maa traffic is expensive, so we would like avoid running our app there.


You can override your backup regions! If you run flyctl regions list you’ll see what’s currently enabled. Then set flyctl regions backup <whatever> to anything you want to prevent the defaults. If you’re running 2+ regions, you can just set backups to the same as primary regions.
