Metabase instance deployed to Docker Azure app service keep resetting

I have a metabase instance running on Azure app service using docker. i noticed that the DB conenction setting are not presistant . every time i restart the app service it reset all the setting and takes me through setup again . any idea how to fix this ?

Hi @fballan
Make sure you launch the container with a persistent application database - like Postgres:

There's a work-in-progress tutorial for setting up Azure:

Once it's completed, then it will be added to

Thank you for your reply man that was very helpful. but isn't this what is happening when i setup . I have a separate MySQL DB that is used by the other app service and metabase are used to read that data and visualise it .

@fballan Post "Diagnostic Info" from Admin > Troubleshooting.

the moment i restart my app service or my instance it will go into setup again

this i s my diagnostic

@fballan So you're using H2 as the application database, which I'm guessing you don't have in a persistent volume. H2 should not be used for Metabase in production. Use Postgres/MySQL as I already provided links to.
Follow the work-in-progress tutorial I linked to.
