How to enable autoscaling

How do i enable autoscaling? i’m getting this error message from the cli when i try to set autoscaling

However, when i email that address, this is the automatic response i get:

Autoscaling was previously possible on my account (i first tried the platform a while back, maybe a year or so)
This seems like an odd limit, which only hinders people who are experimenting with the platform to evaluate it or get a hang of it, Before starting to use it professionaly


This may be the obvious response but … have you tried emailing about it? That email says that can be used for account questions, which this would strike me as. I would guess you would need to add at the least a payment method to your account (so Fly can prevent abuse). Perhaps you already have.

Indeed i already have a payment method linked to the account, after i wrote this post yesterday i tried manual scaling as well, but it didn’t work either, and it gave me a similar error message that suggested i email this time, which i did, and now i’m just waiting for a response hoping this gets resolved, because it’s frustrating when you trying a platform and get hit by random hidden limits, especially when they’re so low.
