This rule belongs to the api-blueprint-validation ruleset and states that:

A resource in an API Blueprint/Elements file must not define an Attributes or a Payload section for the request when the actions use the GET HTTP method. This is because such methods do not expect a body and, therefore, all related information will be automatically ignored during import/transformations in APIMatic.

Maximum SeverityWarning
MessageAn attributes or a request payload section is defined for a GET method.

Suggested Fixes

  • If an Attributes section is defined for the GET action, remove it.
  • If a Request section is defined, remove any Attributes or Body or Schema sections from it.
