Labels and annotations not working using manifest file | but the same is working using CLI commands

Somehow when i Add labels and annotations in manifest file its not working

I tried to add labels and annotations in the metadata block in manifest, deleted the old app and then re-pushed using the manifest file which had below block added:

contact: "[email protected]"
env: dev

cf labels app training-app doesn't shows anything.

If the same I try using set-label commend then its working.
Anybody else facing similar issue?


  • What Cloud Foundry instance/provider are you using? Also, what version of the CLI are you using?

  • I am using anynine cloud foundry instance.
    Verison is : cf version 7.2.0+be4a5ce2b.2020-12-10

    Hi @mohitagarwal2211. I was able to test this using the same CLI and Anynines. Could you check for the indentation in the manifest? If it isn't correct, it will not error (as manifests are extensible) but the labels won't be set. The manifest I used (a different app) is below).

    - name: first-push
      instances: 1
      memory: 32M
      disk_quota: 64M
      path: ./sample-app.zip
      - route: ((route))
      - go_buildpack
          contact: "[email protected]"
          env: dev

    Hi @spgreenberg , my bad indentation was incorrect due to which it was not showing, after correction it worked fine.
    Just a suggestion it should prompt an error in manifest file during compilation itself for such mistakes.

    Also the sample provided training-app is giving error and no longer getting compiled. Can you get this checked and corrected please as newbie learner its difficult to learn without doing actual labs:

    Heya there @mohitagarwal2211,

    I had stumbled on that issue myself on Friday. Given I don't take no for an answer or better described failure for an outcome, I tried a number of options which although it admittedly took far more time than intended, I ended up with a working version of the training-application:

    As discussed on this thread, issuing go mod tidy did the trick. Specifically:

    1. unzip training-app.zip
    2. cd training-app
    3. go mod tidy
    4. copy manifest.yml to the root of the application
    5. cf push training-app -f manifest.yml --random-route

    On the steps above I've obviously skipped the -p path option to the compressed folder. Let me know if that works for you as expected.
