Resolving "No job functions found" Error in Azure Functions

Muhammad Haseeb Rehman 30 Reputation points


I'm encountering an issue with my Azure Functions project that's causing a persistent "No job functions found. Try making your job classes and methods public" error. Despite following the standard guidelines, the error persists. Here are the details:

  • Azure Functions Core Tools Version: 4.0.5455 (64-bit)
  • Function Runtime Version:

The error occurs when running the function app locally and the full message is as follows:

[2023-12-25T14:17:48.218Z] Found /Users/username/Downloads/Programming/ProjectName/ProjectName.csproj. Using for user secrets file configuration.

[2023-12-25T14:17:49.193Z] No job functions found. Try making your job classes and methods public. If you're using binding extensions (e.g. Azure Storage, ServiceBus, Timers, etc.) make sure you've called the registration method for the extension(s) in your startup code (e.g. builder.AddAzureStorage(), builder.AddServiceBus(), builder.AddTimers(), etc.).

    Hello @Muhammad Haseeb Rehman - I tested based on the same details you've shared in your post (except that mine didn't have the MealzNow types, of course) and think it's a minor config issue (not related to code), and as @Divakarkumar-3696 answered below, I also confirmed that the absence of "FUNCTIONS_WORKER_RUNTIME": "dotnet-isolated" setting can cause the error. Do you have any updates?

    Here's an official .NET 7 project sample with the correct configurations:

    BTW, support for .NET 7 is ending on May 14, 2024.

    Hi @Muhammad Haseeb Rehman ,

    Please make sure in the local.settings.json file you have set worker runtime to Isolated, as below

    "FUNCTIONS_WORKER_RUNTIME": "dotnet-isolated"

    If this is helpful please accept answer.
