[CompositeProjects] The file has not been loaded, because it is not specified in the project
While running a project from Azure DevOps the pipeline fails because of this error. The error appears for about 17 files (API definitions and testcases in various testsuites) none of which are in my project or Git repository.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The reason for the pipeline failing turned out to be something entirely different in my case
Pipeline is running now even though these error messages are still there. Using ReadyAPI 3.10.2
It looks like ReadyAPI is looking for API definitions and testcases that have been deleted from the project. I found that when I add them again to the project, some of the references to missing files disappear.
Still, strange that there is no one from Smartbear who is able to tell us where this error comes from.

I saw the same issue in my project a few days ago and following the instructions from Tanya (To fix the issue) in the link, the warning log messages were resolved.
In short, the reason could be caused by multiple people making changes to a repository based composite project and/or multiple people with different versions of ReadyAPI working on the same composite project. All users accessing a composite project should be on the same ReadyAPI version. If not on the very latest version (3.20.1), consider updating to it because it resolves security vulnerability found in the log4j library that has been in the news lately.
