Mapping list in Yaml to list of objects in Spring Boot

The reason must be somewhere else. Using only Spring Boot 1.2.2 out of the box with no configuration, it Just Works. Have a look at this repo - can you get it to break?

Are you sure the YAML file looks exactly the way you pasted? No extra whitespace, characters, special characters, mis-indentation or something of that sort? Is it possible you have another file elsewhere in the search path that is used instead of the one you're expecting?

  • You don't need constructors
  • You don't need to annotate inner classes
  • RefreshScope have some problems when using with @Configuration. Please see this github issue

Change your class like this:

@ConfigurationProperties(prefix = "available-payment-channels-list")
public class AvailableChannelsConfiguration {

    private String xyz;
    private List<ChannelConfiguration> channelConfigurations;

    // getters, setters

    public static class ChannelConfiguration {
        private String name;
        private String companyBankAccount;

        // getters, setters
