Confused by this Error: Bamboo YAML import failed: Could not determine YAML document version


I am moving my build plans over from the Web based UI to the YAML format, and I am receiving this error, not exactly sure what it is saying, or even what it means, anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Bamboo YAML import failed: Could not determine YAML document version: Push to Test / tasks / [0] / inject-variables: Property is required. 

Here is the task it is referring to:

inject-variables: #Inject Variables
file: "app_validation/appserver/tests/"
scope: RESULT
namespace: gulp

I am using Bamboo version 6.10.4 The document version should be version 2 from my knowledge.

In your example indentation is wrong. It should be:

inject-variables: #Inject Variables
file: "app_validation/appserver/tests/"
scope: RESULT
namespace: gulp

Ah, I see I didn't even notice, I fixed it and it works fine. Thanks for your help It's greatly appreciated!!

Hi @edwin 

Thanks for responding, but I've looked at this and I don't see a formatting issue with what I have, could there be another underlying issue? specifically with they way my task is typed? I read the documentation for this and everything appears right.
