.json files not listed as untracked in SourceTree when the file is created

I am using GRUNT to build my development version and it creates a file called manifest.json. When I go to commit my development changes to my master branch and then finally deploy from my GIT account on BeanStalk that file never comes up initially as untracked so I can't even add it. Any thoughts or help on why this is happening. I even changed it to .php and it came up as untracked. I then changed it back and its nowhere to be found. I looked for a setting that would allow me to track this kind of file and also I don't have a gitignore on that file or any other as far as I know unless GRUNT automatically ignores it for me but it is required in my production site.

Check your .gitignore file.

Just found it. It was in the gitignore file. GRUNT added it automatically. Sorry to wase your time.
