zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(89)] Running as root without --no-sandbox is not supported

  • I have deployed jsreport to a Linux function app on azure using my personal account and all was well as a test. Now when I try and publish using devops to an azure function app on our app service plan (Linux) I get this error when running the api/myreport ?

    Error: Failed to launch chrome!

  • Try to add this to the config

    "chrome": {
      "launchOptions": {
        "args": ["--no-sandbox"]

  • Thanks for the advice, can i check.....


    "extensions": {

    In here?

  • I have just added it above "extensions" and it is now working. Many thanks for the super quick response.
