I have created a message channel in VS Code. When I attempt to deploy from the package.xml file I receive this error: "No source backed components present in the package".

When I attempt to deploy the xml file itself I receive this error: "Could not infer a metadata type".

Does any know what this means? I appreciate anyone's help with solving this.

  • This almost certainly means the file is the wrong folder, and so the correct datatype couldn't be determined. Make sure the xml file is stored in the correct file location. Read this carefully.
