Unable to create a new blueprint with free database

Hi, I am trying to create a new blueprint containing a python application and postgres and I am getting following error
“databases[0].plan cannot downgrade database from Starter to Free”

Since this is a new application, not sure what does downgrade here means?

Additional Info

  • I already have another app running on starter plan
  • This is a new application and I want to start with a free plan./

Do you have an existing database with the same name as the one that the blueprint contains? That would be the reason you’re getting that error.

If you already have used the same blueprint then it would be trying to modify the existing services. You would need to do New > Blueprint and select it again and then we will ask you if you want to create new services or update existing ones, if you choose create new services then it would do exactly that,

Thanks for the reply. I just checked, I had copied the db config from older app and had forgotten to update the name of the resource. Thanks.
