I have the following column formatting:

  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/column-formatting.schema.json",
  "elmType": "div",
  "txtContent": "@currentField",
  "attributes": {
    "class": "=if(indexOf(toLowerCase(@currentField),'07') != -1, 'ms-fontColor-redDark','')"

The first line give the following error: $ref '/properties/attributes/class' in 'https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/column-formatting.schema.json' can not be resolved.(768).

Replacing the schema link to https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/v2/column-formatting.schema.json throw the same error.

The list did work properly last week, and with no changes to formatting I get this error and I have no idea on how to troubleshoot this. Same result in both Edge and Chrome.

  • I tried using the v2 formatting json and it is working for me { "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/v2/column-formatting.schema.json", "elmType": "div", "txtContent": "@currentField", "attributes": { "class": "=if(indexOf(toLowerCase(@currentField),'07') != -1, 'ms-fontColor-redDark','')" } } . Can you try applying the formatting on any other column or try to change the formatting a little bit to see if the formatting is working or not. Commented May 5, 2022 at 13:31
  • All columns give the same error. Can this be a change from central IT?

I tried to use your column formatting and it works successfully.

I recommend you do troubleshooting, please try to change the formatting and then apply it to the other columns, check if the error still exists.

  • Thanks, but as stated I don't know how to troubleshoot this. Want to point me on my way?
