This rule belongs to the yaml-semantic-validation ruleset and states that:

A flow mapping is a series of entries consisting of key-value pairs. A flow mapping is surrounded by curly braces { and } respectively while the key-value pair entries are separated by a comma ,. Key and value of a pair must be separated by a colon : and a space. There must be no other content between the key and the value.

Suggested Fixes
