## <a id="limitations"></a>Limitations
* If your app uses a buildpack that does not generate a `web` process type, such as Ruby or Python, you should do the following:
1. Before pushing your app, create a [Procfile]( in the root directory of the app.
2. Declare a `web` process type in the file.
If you do not declare this process type, your app will not be accessible through the cf CLI after you create Scheduler jobs for it.
* The maximum number of tasks that you can schedule is determined by the memory and disk quotas in the Scheduler for PCF org and space. See [Running Tasks]( for more information.
