Do one-off dynos shut down when deploying a new release?


You are deploying a new release of your application with a schema change and are concerned about one-off dynos already running using the previous schema version.


One-off dynos, those created by heroku run, executed by Heroku Scheduler or other means of starting "extra" dynos, are not killed when a new release is made; Only formation dynos, web, worker, etc., those specified in your Procfile and are able to be scaled, are restarted after a release finishes.
