    i am getting below error in gate pod while deploying basic auth in spinnaker , followed above steps :

    Key: security.basic.enabled
    Reason: The security auto-configuration is no longer customizable.

    gate-local.yml contains following :
    enabled: true
    name: *****
    password: ******

    I followed the instruction but seems it is not working, even I use incognito mode to test, it doesn’t requires the username and password.

    I found out it is the indent issue, once fix indent it is working fine.
