UI created automations are ignored

The new automation creation UI feature saves the resulting script in automation.yaml
I use

automation: !include_dir_merge_list automations_folder/

in my configuration.yaml.

The result is that the automation created by the UI is ignored by the system.

Can I suggest one of the following:

  1. that automation creations via the UI are placed in a automation.yaml file in the user’s indicated folder
  2. HA parses anything it finds in automation.yaml either before or after following any user defined path to find automation files.

You can have separate files for UI automations and manual automations. See here for how to do that.
