Once the template is deployed

Get your database connection string and delete the service

  • Click on the service called restart-db-then-delete-me
  • You will see a list of deployments under the Deployments tab.
  • Click the most recent build's View Logs button.
  • Click on the Deploy Logs tab. > If the service ran correctly, you should see a message in the logs that says "All done please restart the database" along with your DATABASE_URL connection string.
  • Copy the DATABASE_URL connection string and save it for later.
  • Close the logs view with the X in the top right corner of the opened drawer.
  • Navigate to the settings tab of the restart-db-then-delete-me service.
  • Scroll down to the bottom and click the red Delete Service from All Environments button. > Note: If you would like to use this service and the corresponding repo to create a new Pulse project. You can by cloning the repo from your GitHub account to your local machine.
    • Once you have cloned the repository, you can run the following command. bash rm config-db.ts
    • Then remove the script start: ts-node config-db.ts from the scripts object in the package.json file. > This is to prevent the script from running every time you push up to the repo associated with the restart-db-then-delete-me service.

Restart your database

  • Go into your project on the railway dashboard
  • Click on the Postgres database
  • Navigate to the Settings tab
  • Click the button that says Restart Database

How to connect Pulse to your database

Documentation Reference

  • Go to your Prisma Data Platform dashboard
  • Click on the project you want to add Pulse to (or create a new one)
  • Click on Configure Pulse
  • Paste in the connection string from the railway dashboard

The connection string can be found by clicking on the Postgres database and navigating to the Connect tab, then clicking the copy icon next to DATABASE_URL

Once you have done that, you will need to wait for Pulse to establish the connection. This can take a few minutes.

Now you can follow the Pulse documentation to get started using Pulse in your projects.
