I am trying to share a database between two apps on
Heroku according to Share database between 2 apps in Heroku but setting up database_url on the second app gives an error:
$ heroku config:add DATABASE_URL=postgres://...
Setting config vars and restarting pacific-headland-1960... failed
! Cannot destroy last attachment to billing app for resource loving-subtly-5807
Best How To :
DATABASE_URL is what's currently storing your second app's connection to its provisioned DB, which Heroku is kindly preventing you from deleting because there are no other references to it.
First, remove the second application's DB. Anything in it will be destroyed.
heroku addons:destroy heroku-postgresql:<your DB tier> --app <your second app>
If these are new apps, your DB tier is probably
hobby-dev, but you can check for it by running
heroku addons --app <your second app>.
Then, you'll be able to set
DATABASE_URL on the second app.
If you want to have the second app connected to both DBs, you'll need to store the first app's DB URL in a different environment variable and update your second app's code to use it.
Unrelated to your question, you've just pasted your DB credentials into a public space. You should roll them with
heroku pg:credentials --reset --app <your first application>.
