Deploy function - resource says it's a web service not a function

Am I missing something? When I try to deploy a function inside my app, I get to the resources section and it says it’s a web service. Documentation shows it saying as a function but everytime I try to load in my github repo, it comes up as a web service.

Am I doing something wrong or should it be like that? It’s a php function.

I’ve just tested this with this sample function here:

It all seems to be working as expected and the App Platform auto-detects that the project is a function rather than a web service.

Does your function follow the conversion as described in the docs:


├── packages
│   └── sample
│       └── hello
│           └── hello.php
└── project.yml
