I receive a strange error "Not available for deploy for this API version" for deploying LightningComponentBundle by sfdx force:source:deploy command or by VS Code Menu Item "SFDX Deploy Source To Org".

21:55:35.494 sfdx force:source:deploy --sourcepath d:\Reps\testname\salesforce\FLSMan\force-app\main\default\lwc\fls --json --loglevel fatal {"message":"Deploy failed.","status":1,"stack":"DeployFailed: Deploy failed.\n at ALMError (C:\Program Files\Salesforce CLI\client\node_modules\salesforce-alm\dist\lib\almError.js:44:19)\n at MetadataRegistry.initializeMetadataTypeInfos.then.catch.e (C:\Program Files\Salesforce CLI\client\node_modules\salesforce-alm\dist\lib\source\sourceApiCommand.js:67:35)\n at tryCatcher (C:\Program Files\Salesforce CLI\client\node_modules\bluebird\js\release\util.js:16:23)\n

I use the newest version of VS Code and the newest version of Salesforce Extension Pack and I have updated Salesforce CLI and even reinstalled it but still receive the same error.

This is very confusing since when I convert the source to MDAPI format and deploy it with sfdx force:mdapi:deploy -d src command it works just fine!

Also definitely the org I am using is on version 45, since I was able to deploy LWC by mdapi:deploy command.

Looks like I have found already a culprit here. It is very important to check sourceApiVersion property of project.json configuration.

Looks like this value was 44.0 in my project. Probably because I have created it before updating the salesforce-cli tool. Then I updated the CLI and even reinstalled it but the project version has not been changed.

  "packageDirectories": [
      "path": "force-app",
      "default": true
  "namespace": "",
  "sfdcLoginUrl": "https://login.salesforce.com",
  "sourceApiVersion": /*"44.0"=>*/"45.0"

Now after updating this configuration settings, it started working successfully.

    in my case, it was package.xml with an older version. After updating work properly. Aug 9, 2019 at 6:11
  • Seems like for some metadata (Flows), salesforce doesn't respect the specified API version at all, and just uses the latest version.
