Hi there,

You are getting that message as .NET is not a supported cloud-native buildpack. You can find the list of the supported buildpacks here:

What you could do instead is to create a Dockerfile and deploy your .NET application using a Dockerfile as described here:

Hope that this helps!



If you’re here because you got “no component detected” while trying to deploy a static website: make sure you have an index.html (and not some other filename like I did).
