Internal error: Expected value to be neither null nor undefined: functionName when creating an Azure Functions Project.

I am following the steps mentioned here: https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/blob/main/articles/ai-services/document-intelligence/tutorial-azure-function.md

Everything seems to be going exactly as mentioned in the aforementioned link yet still I am getting this error. Please Help.

    I am working on MacOS Sonoma + VSCode and I was facing the same issue.

    What I have noticed is that I had an older azure-functions-core-tools version installed via Homebrew. I removed any version previously installed and issued this command to install the latest version:

    brew install azure-functions-core-tools@4

    After this, I installed the Azure Functions extension in VSCode and, in my case, this tutorial worked like a charm: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/create-first-function-vs-code-python .

    I hope this helps.
