How to get the compiled version of a config.yml within the UI

When CircleCI runs your config.yml it will expand the config to be able to run all of the commands and orbs that have been called, you can view this compiled version of the config using a button on the UI.


  • Go to your pipelines page

  • Click on the three dots on the right of one of your workflows that have run

  • Click on the Configuration File button

  • On the top right press the compiled button as shown in the screenshot below



You will see that the code has changed to the compiled code and your original code can be found at the bottom as a comment.

This can be used to help identify the code that ran to help debug any issues that you find from commands that are called.
