Unable to deploy DOCR with app_action with giithub actions


I have issue deploying DOCR on app platform with github actions.

I successfully public image to DOCR and then in next step when I try to deploy that image to ma app platform I got this error:

 "[{ \"name\": \"web\", \"repository\": \"\", \"tag\": \"52b4fb8\" } ]" "gamio-api" "***"
all components with following names were not found in your deployed app spec

I followed guiedlines on app action

here is mine github action workflow part that comunicates with digital ocean:

      - name: Generate GITHUB_SHA
        id: github-sha
        shell: bash
        run: |
          SHORT_SHA=$(echo $GITHUB_SHA | cut -c1-7)
          echo "::set-output name=sha::$SHORT_SHA"

      - name: Build container image
        run: docker build . -t${{steps.github-sha.outputs.sha}}

      - name: Install doctl
        uses: digitalocean/action-doctl@v2
          token: ${{ secrets.DIGITALOCEAN_ACCESS_TOKEN }}

      - name: Log in to DigitalOcean Container Registry with short-lived credentials
        run: doctl registry login --expiry-seconds 600

      - name: Publish Image to Digital Ocean Container Registry
        run: docker push${{steps.github-sha.outputs.sha}}

      - name: DigitalOcean App Platform deployment
        uses: digitalocean/app_action@main
          app_name: gamio-api
          token: ${{ secrets.DIGITALOCEAN_ACCESS_TOKEN }}
          images: '[{
            "name": "web",
            "repository": "",
            "tag": "${{steps.github-sha.outputs.sha}}"

my app on digital ocean have name gamio-api and also a web component that should be deployed with this action is named gamio-api
