I uploaded a WebJob project with a name that contains whitespaces (for example "WebJobs.My project") to my Azure Web application, and at the time of running it I got the following error logs:

[06/04/2023 14:51:35 > 92ca53: SYS INFO] Status changed to Initializing [06/04/2023 14:51:35 > 92ca53: SYS INFO] Run script 'run.cmd' with script host - 'WindowsScriptHost' [06/04/2023 14:51:35 > 92ca53: SYS INFO] Status changed to Running [06/04/2023 14:51:36 > 92ca53: INFO] [06/04/2023 14:51:36 > 92ca53: INFO] C:\local\Temp\jobs\triggered\WebJobs.My project\dudvpc3a.l4y>WebJobs.My project.exe

Looks like the typical issue that happens when you forget to enclose a file path with quotes in CMD. I guess a possible solution would be removing any whitespaces from my project name, but it would break my project naming convention...

Any suggestions?

    Hi @Jordi Dalmau

    You can create a run.bat or run.cmd that encapsulates your app with the whitespace. Include this file with the deployment as the platform will check for this file first before looking for an exe.

    You can read more about this on WebJobs · projectkudu/kudu Wiki (github.com)
