Goups.yaml not working - Invalid config for [group]: [view] is an invalid option for [group]


i start with home assistant for a few days ago. No i have the first problem. After trying a tutorial to design my dashboard und after checking the config i get the notification:

Invalid config for [group]: [view] is an invalid option for [group]. Check: group->group->default.view->view. (See /config/configuration.yaml, line 8).

I use the group.yamp-file. For a test i wrote to the file:

    view: yes
    name: Home
        - weather.andinas_reich

The configuration.yaml looks like this:

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

# Text to speech
  - platform: google_translate

group: !include groups.yaml
automation: !include automations.yaml
script: !include scripts.yaml
scene: !include scenes.yaml

Can you help me? I have read many topics here and by searching with google, but i do not know, what is my mistake.

Thank you a lot…


Your test worked perfectly well, it proved that you cannot randomly type things into your configuration without generating an error - well done!

I don’t know what tutorial you looked at but it’s got to be at least 2 years out of date I would think.

If you want to customise your dashboard, see here for an easy introduction…

view isn’t a valid option for group (removed a fair while back)
