Linux Consumption Function app sync trigger fails with RBAC auth when WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_PACKAGE is already added with new URL

See original GitHub issue


When we try to deploy our node function we are getting following error:

Run Azure/functions-action@v1.4.6
Using RBAC for authentication, GitHub Action will perform resource validation.
Successfully acquired site configs from function app!
Detected function app sku: Consumption
Successfully acquired app settings from function app (RBAC)!
Detected function app language: Node
Will archive . into /home/runner/work/_temp/temp_web_package_***.zip as function app content
Will use WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_PACKAGE to deploy since RBAC is detected and your function app is on Linux Consumption.
Error: Execution Exception (state: PublishContent) (step: Invocation)
Error:   When request Azure resource at PublishContent, Sync Trigger Functionapp : Failed to perform sync trigger on function app. Function app may have malformed content. Please manually restart your function app and inspect the package from WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_PACKAGE.
Error: Deployment Failed!

When I check the WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_PACKAGE Parameter in Azure Portal, I see that the parameter is updated. Removing WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_PACKAGE from function and redeploying works.

Technical details:

  • node function
  • linux
  • RBAC Deployment
  • consumption plan

Any Idea, what could be wrong?

Go to azure portal and remove function app setting “WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_PACKAGE”. Once it is successful, then re-deploy using publish profile instead of RBAC like here:

WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_PACKAGE = 1 is not supported on Linux consumption because of which the other option is WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_PACKAGE = URL if the user wants to use a remote zip.

Using ZipDeploy path is the recommended path for Linux Consumption, and it doesn’t increase cold start.

Please try to deploy using publish profile instead of RBAC like here:

According to my previous attempts using publish profiles, they are not compatible with WEBSITE_RUN_FROM_PACKAGE values being set, and these are necessary for package deployments. They must be set to a URL for a Linux consumption plan project according to this documentation:
