startup-command parameter is ignored

See original GitHub issue

We’re using this GitHub action to deploy an app to Azure App Services. The workflows seems to works (and the deployment occurs) but the startup-command is ignored, and GitHub raises an error:


This message contradicts the yaml action definition file.

Here is our yaml action file:

      - production
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
      - uses: actions/checkout@master
      - name: Set up Node.js version
        uses: actions/setup-node@v1
          node-version: "10.x"
      - name: npm install, build, and test
        run: |
          npm install
          npm run build --if-present
          npm run test --if-present
      - name: "Deploy to Azure Web App"
        uses: azure/webapps-deploy@v1
          app-name: "REDACTED"
          startup-command: "npm run api-prd"
          slot-name: "production"
          publish-profile: REDACTED
          package: .

Am I missing something or is it a known issue?

currently startup-command is not supported for windows web apps and if publish profile auth scheme is used. Please use Azure login before webapps-deploy action to use startup command with linux container. Refer Sample workflow

+1 on this issue with v2 The line in validation.js

 if (!!startupCommand) {
        throw new Error("startup-command is not a valid input for Windows web app or with publish-profile auth scheme.");

This will always cause an exception to be thrown if startupcommand is present since this will evaluate to true with a non empty string
