How to use pipe character in YAML specs?

Edited

I have a simple script:

DEV:
tasks:
- checkout: SOME / Repo
- script: |
#!/bin/bash
set -ex
echo '{"a":"b"}' | jq -M

But for some reason the last line is failing with the following error:

...
error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 + jq -M error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 + echo '{"a":"b"}' error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 jq - commandline JSON processor [version 1.5-1-a5b5cbe] error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 Usage: jq [options] <jq filter> [file...] error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 jq is a tool for processing JSON inputs, applying the error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 given filter to its JSON text inputs and producing the error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 filter's results as JSON on standard output. error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 The simplest filter is ., which is the identity filter, error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 copying jq's input to its output unmodified (except for error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 formatting). error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 For more advanced filters see the jq(1) manpage ("man jq") error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33 and/or https://stedolan.github.io/jq error 15-Feb-2022 19:29:33

It seems '|' should be somehow escaped. I tried to use \| but it doesn't work. What I'm doing wrong?

Hello @denis_kot

jq needs a filter. Try something like this:

echo '{"a":"b"}' | jq -M .

Weird, in the console it's working without any filter
