@mpasternacki where do you need to add this file? and do you have some examples of how we can use it?

i wanted to have an ability so i could have my databags created as one yaml file that can map onto all the individual item json files instead of having a file per item, but also to have it so it can also have encrypted values in the yaml.

Not sure if you figured this out yet @developerinlondon but do you have this file in the correct spot?

yes this should be a Gem, or a Knife Plugin package rather than a file.
