Hi Anusha,

Is there any specific thing you want to do?

Please note that all current  YAML Specs library available is covered by the reference documentation and if you're not finding examples of what you're trying to do there, it's possible that you'll not be able to use YAML specs to create your plan. 

Is it possible to share with us details of your plan? What building tool are using?


Maybe some actual yaml example code in the Reference Docs would be great. 

I'm reviewing the reference docs right now and I need to do a simple checkout. 


  • Add CheckoutItem objects. You will specify the repository and the path where it will be checked out. You can add multiple CheckoutItem.
  • Decide if task should perform a clean checkout. If set, the task will remove contents of each specified folder before checking out the source code.


That's straight out of the Reference Documentation. There is no example of where or how CheckoutItem should be used and how the options for it like clean checkout should be applied. Incredibly poor documentation. 

Unfortunately my team doesn't have Java experience, besides myself so just switching to Java spec isn't an option.

YAML have checkout task by default without any configuration.

Feature request to configure more options to the checkout task
