Feature request: pause an application

I would like the ability to pause an application for some time, that way I can keep all the config (autoscaling, env variable etc…) and my app will not be billed because I don’t use it for some time.
Right now I have to delete the app and recreate it later.

You can! flyctl scale count 0 will effectively pause the application, and allow you to scale it back up when you’re ready.

Oh okay that’s nice, I was looking for this option in the web ui setting.

We also have flyctl suspend and flyctl resume which do the same thing. We’ll be improving the UI in a few months, until then most of the energy is going into the CLI.
