Permission denied to my_app_data example file

I’m going through the Tutorial steps and I’m up to #3, Store a Secret in Conjur. I am logged on as root. When I try to cat the my_app_data file to get “Dave’s” API key, I get this –

error: Permission denied @ rb_sysopen - policy/BotApp.yml

Permissions on my_app_data say I should be able to view it –

-rw-r–r--. 1 root root 59 Oct 24 15:16 my_app_data

What am I doing wrong?

Hi,

Could you please provide the command you are executing.

Thanks,
Andrew
