Android Studio lint.xml configuration

I would like to configure lint in Android Studio to ignore some file. I have placed the lint.xml file in app/ folder. Here is the content of the lint file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<issue id="UnusedResources">
<ignore path="res/drawable/background_palette_drawable_6.xml" />

When I run lint to check for unused resources it still finds this file as unused.

In app build.gradle I have:

lintOptions {
disable 'InvalidPackage'
abortOnError false
absolutePaths false
lintConfig file('lint.xml')

I have tried changing the file path to

and still it does not work.

I put
<issue id="UnusedResources" severity="ignore">
and in that case it just ignores all the unused resources so it seems the file
is found correctly but maybe something is wrong with the path?


Consider using path="**/background_palette_drawable_6.xml" with the ** glob pattern to match the file regardless of its location.
