Microsoft.Azure.webjobs.host: error indexing method

I was trying to run my HTTP-triggered Azure Function recently and got the error Microsoft.Azure.WebJobs.Host: Cannot bind parameter ‘name’ to type String.

Below is my HTTP-triggered Azure Function code

public static class Function1
    {
        [FunctionName("HTTPAzureFunction")]
        public static async Task<IActionResult> Run(
            [HttpTrigger(AuthorizationLevel.Anonymous, "get", "post", Route = null )] HttpRequest req, string name, ILogger log)
        {
            log.LogInformation("C# HTTP trigger function processed a request.");

            string name1 = req.Query["name"];

            string requestBody = await new StreamReader(req.Body).ReadToEndAsync();
            dynamic data = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(requestBody);
            name = name ?? data?.name;

            string responseMessage = string.IsNullOrEmpty(name)
                ? "This HTTP triggered function executed successfully. Pass a name in the query string or in the request body for a personalized response."
                : $"Hello, {name}. This HTTP triggered function executed successfully.";

            return new OkObjectResult(responseMessage);
        }
    }
}

After running the above function, i got the above error. The exact error message was as below

The ‘HTTPAzureFunction’ function is in error: Microsoft.Azure.WebJobs.Host: Error indexing method ‘HTTPAzureFunction’. Microsoft.Azure.WebJobs.Host: Cannot bind parameter ‘name’ to type String. Make sure the binding supports the parameter Type. If you’re using binding extensions (e.g., Azure Storage, ServiceBus, Timers, etc.), make sure you’ve called the registration method for the extension(s) in your startup code (e.g., builder.AddAzureStorage(), builder.AddServiceBus(), builder.AddTimers(), etc.).

‘HTTPAzureFunction’ is the name of my Azure function.

To fix the above error, I tried a couple of ways, but nothing worked out. I even tried adding a few classes from the Nuget package.

Now, the issue was I had added the string name parameter in my Azure HTTP triggered function while working with Azure Function HTTP Trigger Route functionality. It fixed my issue after removing the parameter string name from my Azure Function. You can see below

builder.addtimers()

Now, I removed the string name parameter from my Azure function
