I have a Pipeline with AppendVariable and Set variable activities used in that but when i deployed through CI/CD its showing like Could not load the resource like


  • Hi All,

    Could any one help me on this please like i have one pipeline where i have getMatadata -> foreach-> If condition -> Append variable -> Set variable -> filter -> set variable -> Execute pipeline as my pipeline flow with these activities .

    its working fine in DEV but when i deployed the same pipeline in QA through CI/CD ( powershell via VSTS ) i deployed but showing error saying " Could not load the resource "

    I could see one thing deployed json inside activity type for "AppenVariable" and "Setvariable " is showing as "Activity" , may be causing the issue .

    but what would have been happened when i deployed through Ci/CD causing this issue ,,,,,,Any idea please......

  • Hi Poornima,

    This error usually occurs when there's a problem in your JSON. Most likely you have some invalid chars at the start of the JSON. 

    I would recommend you to go through the doc for CI/CD and check if you have missed something :

    Also there's a similar post here :

    The proposed answer here might be helpful in your case as well.

    Let us know if this helps. Else we can continue to probe in further.
