Summary: Avoid chaining rule bodies
If the head of the rule is same, it's possible to chain multiple rule bodies together to obtain the same result. This form was more common in the past, but is no longer recommended as it is arguably less readable, and less likely to be understood by people new to Rego.
opa fmt command will automatically "unchain" chained rule bodies, so if you have enabled the opa-fmt
rule, you may safely configure the level of this rule to
ignore. While we normally don't include style rules covered
opa fmt, this one is peculiar enough that we felt it was worthy of an exception.
This linter rule provides the following configuration options:
# one of "error", "warning", "ignore"
