Build Machine Cannot Open File

Build Machine Cannot Open File

Description of the issue

I’m encountering an issue in an iOS project of mine where a file necessary for a build phase is unable to be read by the Bitrise build machine.

The specific error is:

error: The file “.swiftlint.yml” couldn’t be opened because you don’t have permission to view it. (exit code: 1)

The current file permissions are -rw-r--r--@ 1 redacted staff 276B Jun 29 10:15 .swiftlint.yml, which should be readable. I’ve also never encountered this issue before, even with other projects running the same build phase.

My build phase script is as follows:

export PATH="$PATH:/opt/homebrew/bin"

if which swiftlint >/dev/null; then
    if [ "${CONFIGURATION}" == "Debug" ]; then
        swiftlint --path "./${TARGET_NAME}" --config "${SRCROOT}/.swiftlint.yml"
    echo "Warning: SwiftLint not installed, download from"

I’d prefer to not have to change the file permissions locally as I share my configurations and bitrise.yml files across multiple applications with multiple team members, and I don’t want to have to include updating file permissions as a step when setting up new projects.

Any assistance is appreciated.
