Handling changeset yaml formatting errors

Sometimes you may encounter Format YAML errors when trying to run a changeset. These are often a result of misconfiguration or formatting errors. This document attempts to explain some common yaml errors and their meaning.

Published value error:

cannot publish a changeset that has a published value set in its changesetTemplate

This occurs when you have a published: field in the spec and then try to run the Publish bulk action on a batch change. Example:

    message: Format all YAML 
  published: false

Solution A) Change published: false to published: true in your spec and re-apply.

Solution B) Remove the published field altogether. Doing so will allow you to control the publication state from the UI.
