Error Handling

  • If you do not upload app.yaml, then you will meet the error message as below. You just need to upload app.yaml and then you can solve the error.
ERROR: An app.yaml (or appengine-web.xml) file is required to deploy this directory as an App Engine application. Create an app.yaml file using the directions at https://cloud.google.com/appengine/docs/flexible/python/configuring-your-app-with-app-yaml (App Engine flexible environment) or https://cloud.google.com/appengine/docs/standard/python/config/appref (App Engine standard environment) under the tab for your language.ERROR: (gcloud.app.deploy) [/Users/xxx/ooo] could not be identified as a valid source directory or file.
  • You may meet the error message as below when you type command `gcloud app deploy`. I just tried again and solved the error. If you still meet this error, you can refer other solutions by here.
ERROR: (gcloud.app.deploy) NOT_FOUND: Unable to retrieve P4SA: [xxx-ooo@gcp-gae-service.iam.gserviceaccount.com] from GAIA. Could be GAIA propagation delay or request from deleted apps.
  • You may meet this error if you still not enable Cloud Build API. You just need to enable Cloud Build API and you can solve it.
ERROR: (gcloud.app.deploy) Error Response: [7] Access Not Configured. Cloud Build has not been used in project visa-app-beta before or it is disabled. Enable it by visiting https://console.developers.google.com/apis/api/cloudbuild.googleapis.com/overview?project=visa-app-beta then retry. If you enabled this API recently, wait a few minutes for the action to propagate to our systems and retry.
