Stuck in the "Set your environment variables" page

Expected behavior

I should have access to my Forest admin app.


I’m stuck in the “Set your environment variables” page.

Although I set up properly the env variables, it does nothing.
I keep receiving 204 response logs (/forest), so I don’t know what to do now.

I restarted multiple times but it doesn’t work.

The admin app is hosted on Heroku.
The database is hosted in Render.

  • Database: Postgres
  • Project Name: cloudnews-admin

Thank you for your help.


Hi @matthieuchabert,

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to our community! :raised_hands:

Can you please give us a bit more context:

  • What are you trying to achieve? Deploy your project to production?
  • Do you have any error message in your browser? In your server?

Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:


Yes I’d like to deploy to production.

• The admin server is hosted on Heroku.
• The database is hosted on Render.

I don’t have any error. If I go on the admin app I get a “Your application is running!”.
And in the server logs, I have GET requests every few seconds to /forest, and I always have a 204 responses.



Hi @matthieuchabert,

Did you succeed with having the development working?


Nope, nobody got back to my previous message.

Hello @matthieuchabert,

There are several available environments with ForestAdmin.
First you get a development environment after the onboarding process has been successful. Thanks to this development environment you can play around with the Forest Admin features.
From this development environment, you can deploy to production, and create a production environment.
You can also create remote environments for example a staging one.

Have you been able to run the default development environment, or are you still stuck on the onboarding process?
