I'm following the documentation for creation the web actions. I'm able to successfully deploy using wskdeploy, but when i'm invoking the action, it throws the following error. Any input on what may be doing wrong?
Initialization has failed due to: There was an error uncompressing the action archive.

Can you try using wsk for deploying your ZIP?
There is another way of deploying a ZIP action using the wsk command. You miss the manifest.yaml file flexibility with this mode; you can’t define multiple actions/packages at the same time. The ZIP file has to have in the root the package.json file.
wsk action create my-action --kind nodejs:10 zip-file.zip
Seems it does not work on Windows at all: https://github.com/apache/openwhisk-wskdeploy/issues/913
Once I have downloaded the ZIP created by wskdeploy, I found that it added to archive folder path starting from C:/. It did not include all disk content, but included empty folders which break the ZIP structure and action cannot be properly executed:
Suggested workaround to use wsk for ZIP deployment instead works fine for me, but it makes work on actions much harder because each action should be packaged and uploaded separately.
We've updated the docs to highlight that if you have dependencies, then you have to point to the folder where the action is defined and the action has to be defined in a file called index.js
