I'm using Sitecore XM Cloud environment, and I setting up my next.js app to connect to Sitecore editors.
I'm currently following this article.
After setting up the configuration file and run jss deploy config, I got the following error

Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, mkdir '/App_Config/Include/zzz' at Object.mkdirSync (node:fs:1390:3) at module.exports.makeDirSync (/Users/user/Documents/XMCloud/xxx/xxx.XMC.Websites/node_modules/fs-extra/lib/mkdirs/make-dir.js:23:13) at deploy (/Users/user/Documents/XMCloud/xxx/xxx.XMC.Websites/node_modules/@sitecore-jss/sitecore-jss-dev-tools/dist/cjs/deploy.js:21:28) at Object. (/Users/user/Documents/XMCloud/xxx/xxx.XMC.Websites/node_modules/@sitecore-jss/sitecore-jss-cli/dist/cjs/scripts/deploy.config.js:58:45) at Generator.next () at fulfilled (/Users/user/Documents/XMCloud/xxx/xxx.XMC.Websites/node_modules/@sitecore-jss/sitecore-jss-cli/dist/cjs/scripts/deploy.config.js:5:58) { errno: -2, syscall: 'mkdir', code: 'ENOENT', path: '/App_Config/Include/zzz' }

This is my scjssconfig.json content

  "sitecore": {
    "instancePath": "",
    "apiKey": "<api key>",
    "deploySecret": "<deploy secret key>",
    "deployUrl": "https://xxx.sitecorecloud.io/sitecore/api/jss/import",
    "layoutServiceHost": "https://xxx.sitecorecloud.io/"

I have 2 questions here

  1. I'm suspecting the error is due to the missing instance path. But I'm using XM Cloud, where can I get the actual path? Do I need to raise Sitecore support to get it?
  2. The sitecoreConfigPath defined in package.json is set to /App_Config/Include/zzz. It is a must to deploy to this folder path?

Please make sure you are following the correct documentation and using the correct github repository. The xmcloud work differently and you need to use Sitecore CLI for deployment.

Getting Started: https://doc.sitecore.com/xmc/en/developers/xm-cloud/getting-started-with-xm-cloud.html

Deploy: https://doc.sitecore.com/xmc/en/developers/xm-cloud/the-cloud-deployment-command.html https://doc.sitecore.com/xmc/en/developers/xm-cloud/xm-cloud-deploy-app.html

You can check out the demo from Andy Cohen for deployment on youtube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a23g2TRUvOI&ab_channel=AndyCohen

I hope it helps
