"Linter failed to process a file, possible invalid file. Possible reasons:

  • contains unsupported encoding (only UTF-8 is supported)
  • not an Ansible file
  • it contains some unsupported custom YAML objects (!! prefix)
  • it was not able to decrypt an inline !vault block.

This violation is not skippable, so it cannot be added to the warn_list or the skip_list. If a vault decryption issue cannot be avoided, the offending file can be added to exclude_paths configuration.

Possible errors codes:

  • load-failure[not-found] - Indicates that one argument file or folder was not found on disk.
