Packages in requirements.txt not getting installed on deploying Flask app on Azure App service

Harshita S 1 Reputation point


I followed the instuctions at and deployed a basic Flask application on Azure App Service. However, if I try to install numpy and import it, there is an error. I am not sure why requirements.txt's packages aren't automatically installed.

I deployed using this command: az webapp up --sku B1 --name adaptivedialogue

Error message:

I do have numpy in my requirements.txt file, but it still says Module Not Found.

I have attached my (renamed app.txt)74006-app.txt and requirements.txt files.
