You will see
Error: "is not a .ql file, .qls file, a directory, or a query pack specification" if CodeQL is unable to find the named query, query suite, or query pack at the location requested in the workflow. There are two common reasons for this error.
- There is a typo in the workflow.
- A resource the workflow refers to by path was renamed, deleted, or moved to a new location.
After verifying the location of the resource, you can update the workflow to specify the correct location.
