"Invalid Dockerrun.aws.json" error when creating a deploy#
Byte Order Marks (BOM) in Dockerrun file#
If your Dockerrun.aws.json file contains a Byte Order Marker, you may receive an "Invalid Dockerrun.aws.json" error when creating a deploy. If you create or edit the Dockerrun file using Visual Studio, and you have not modified the file encoding settings in Visual Studio, you are likely to encounter this error.
To remove the BOM:
At the command line, type the following to remove the BOM:
- (Linux/OS X)
tail -c +4 DockerrunFile > DockerrunFileNew
DockerrunFilewith the path to your Dockerrun file, and
DockerrunFileNewwith a new name for the Dockerrun file without the BOM.
Alternatively, you can use the dos2unix file converter to remove the BOM from your Dockerrun files. Dos2unix is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS.
To remove the BOM using dos2unix:
- At the command line, type the following:
dos2unix --remove-bom -n DockerrunFile DockerrunFileNew
Replace DockerrunFile with the path to your Dockerrun file, and DockerrunFileNew with a new name for the Dockerrun file without the BOM.
