YAML Syntax

All YAML files used in the application manager are parsed using a YAML 1.1 compliant parser. You can find the official specification here: https://yaml.org/spec/1.1.

Note: Node anchors and aliases are not supported in the application manager.

To help with backward compatibility, all configuration files consist of at least two YAML sub-documents, with the first one acting as a file header, for example:

formatType: am-configuration
formatVersion: 1
---
...

The header always has exactly two fields:

  • formatType specifies the type of document(s) that follow the --- end-of-document marker.
  • formatVersion is an integer value starting at 1.

See the corresponding type documentation for valid values for both fields.
