ERROR: Couldn't parse the format of the definition at file: When uploading YAML file

When I upload a YAML file, I get the following error message:

"ERROR: Couldn't parse the format of the definition at file:"

Could it be related to the fact that I am on a trial license? My colleagues can easily load the same file without an issue.

The only difference is that they are using the full licensed version and I am not.

 

Kind regards,

Kristof

Hey @KristofCr,

Are you absolutely sure youre using identical .yaml files to your colleagues?

Are you sure your trial version is the same version as the licensed instances of readyapi?

Aa far as im aware the trial version is fully functional for the period of the trial....there isnt any functionalitu disabled during the trial, so id double check the versioning across the readyapi instances (trial and licensed) as well.as checking the version of .yaml file.

@KristofCr ,

Actually no different between trial / licensed.

you may try to load the same yaml file to check. to make sure you all get the same source file without compress or transfer via email or others change.

yaml (or swagger) should be compliance with OpenAPI spec (OAS). If possible, you can take advantage of diff tool to compare 2 files. Usually it is file broken for such issue.

 

 

Thanks,
