I checked and no application has the manifest.yml file open. Additionally, the user I am running forge tunnel with is in the docker group on my machine.

Any ideas on what is causing this?

Welcome to the Atlassian Developer Community!
Have you checked whether you/user running forge tunnel have right permissions to open this file. Depend on your project setup may be this is on a mount/volume with restricted access ?

If that doesn’t help may I know whether you are following any guide to create this project ?

Hi Lashani,
Thank you for the response. I run forge tunnel as the same user that owns the manifest.yml file. I don’t think it should be an issue with permissions to the file.

To answer your second question: I was following the Forge Jira hello world tutorial when I ran into this error.

Hi @KeianKaserman ,
Could you also please check whether your docker setup has right permission to access the files in your project location?
Also as mentioned in Forge Jira hello world tutorial ,
Note, the forge tunnel command only forwards traffic when the user in Jira or Confluence matches the Forge CLI user. For security reasons, you can’t see the traffic of other users.
