DotNetCoreCLI@2 (dotnet publish) doesn't publish webapi project

Occasional Visitor

I have a solution with .net core mvc and webapi projects. While publishing this project in build pipeline in azure-devops it publishes mvc code in zip folder but it doesn't publish webapi project code. 

here is my publish task:

 

variables:
  buildConfiguration: 'Release'
  solution: '**/*.sln'  
  artifactName: 'drop'

jobs:
- job: Build

  steps:
  - task: DotNetCoreCLI@2
    displayName: Restore
    inputs:
      command: restore
      projects: $(solution)

  - task: DotNetCoreCLI@2
    displayName: 'Dotnet Build'
    inputs:
      projects: $(solution)
      command: 'build'
      arguments: '--configuration $(buildConfiguration)'

    # Publish projects to specified folder.
  - task: DotNetCoreCLI@2
    displayName: 'Dotnet Publish'
    inputs:
      command: 'publish'
      publishWebProjects: true
      projects: $(solution)
      arguments: '-o $(Build.ArtifactStagingDirectory)'

 

 

The webapi project doesn't have web.config or wwwroot but does use Microsoft.NET.Sdk.Web and based on the documentation, it should be able to identify that as web project.

 

Any idea why webapi project is not getting published?
