Failed to start container with shinyproxy-template

Hi,

I am testing shinyproxy and I ran into problems when I wanted to deploy my own apps. I then build the openanalytics/shinyproxy-template container with the Euler-app and tried to add it to the basic application.yml. However, the example apps run fine but for the Euler app I get an error “Failed to start container”. I tested the image on its own and it worked fine. I would appreciate any help.

The application.yml looks like this:

proxy:

  landing-page: /

      container-image: openanalytics/shinyproxy-demo
      access-groups: boss

logging:
  file:
    shinyproxy.log

The error I get is this:

Here is the relevant error part:

You have a typo in your container-cmd - “CMD” does not belong there, should be

      container-cmd: ["R", "-e", "shiny::runApp('/root/euler')"]
