  • Is there a project file (sfdx-project.json) in the root path? Sorry but maybe you can show or tell the files after the .gitignore. Jan 16 at 18:01
  • Hi Jeferson..I have added the screesnshot.. Jan 16 at 18:05
  • No such file ..do you have a package xml file ?? inside manifest folder ..@learnjqueery try running this from another terminal maybe cli or powershell or bash Jan 17 at 12:26
  • package.xml file is there.. if i run it in vscode terminal.. it is giving.. === Deployed Source No results found.. and the changes are not deployed// Jan 17 at 12:40

You are using the wrong parameter. You have to use [-x MANIFEST] instead of [-p SOURCEPATH] working with package.xml :enter image description here as explain in the documentation (https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.sfdx_cli_reference.meta/sfdx_cli_reference/cli_reference_force_source.htm)

  • Hi Badbaxx.. after updating it .. i am getting the following error.. --> Run node_modules/sfdx-cli/bin/run force:source:deploy --manifest manifest/package.xml /home/runner/work/_temp/80c3953c-2ccb-49cf-94a8-35ff9066dc89.sh: line 1: node_modules/sfdx-cli/bin/run: No such file or directory Error: Process completed with exit code 127.

  • Try to add sfdx in your deploy command (run: node_modules/sfdx-cli/bin/run sfdx force:source:deploy [...]

  • Same error --> Run node_modules/sfdx-cli/bin/run sfdx force:source:deploy --manifest /manifest/package.xml /home/runner/work/_temp/4e38dc02-6fca-4ceb-b1a8-4fd9eabc0629.sh: line 1: node_modules/sfdx-cli/bin/run: No such file or directory Error: Process completed with exit code 127. Jan 17 at 11:59
  • remove the / before manifest in your path to manifest to get node_modules/sfdx-cli/bin/run force:source:deploy --manifest manifest/package.xml

  • same error.. i have added the screen shot..removed sfdx command also.. but facing same error.. Jan 17 at 12:21

The command you are using is this

$ sfdx force:source:deploy -p path/to/source

but when you are specifying a manifest you gotta use this

$ sfdx force:source:deploy -x path/to/package.xml

And next time whenever in a fix like this simply do

$ sfdx force:source:deploy --help

(any command without parameter and --help)

this is similar to the man pages of linux it will give all details regarding the commands as well as associated parameters
