Error in Logs about automation

I keep receiving this:

Logger: homeassistant.config
First occurred: 8:31:37 AM (1 occurrences)
Last logged: 8:31:37 AM

Invalid config for [automation]: required key not provided @ data['entity_id']. Got None. (See /config/configuration.yaml, line 9).

Watchman Report found no errors

this is my configuration file:

# Configure a default setup of Home Assistant (frontend, api, etc)



  customize: !include customize.yaml

# Text to speech


  - platform: google_translate

automation: !include automations.yaml

group: !include groups.yaml

the automations keep running as they should,
but this specific notification keep showing up

and it’s really annoying to my OCD :sweat_smile:

I am a noob in Home Assistant :sweat_smile:

I would suspect there is something wrong in your automations.yaml file and probably a small indentation / spacing issue.

The best way to try and narrow it down would be to use a file editor and block comment out sections at a time, reload automations and recheck.

Keep doing this until the offending section is found. Hopefully then the issue will be easier to find.

you are correct :slight_smile:
it seems that there was an automation that i deleted from the automation frontend, but it did not get deleted from the automation.yaml,
so I started using the elimination process, by commenting sections of the yaml file and see if the error kept showing.

thank you very much :slight_smile:
