Suggested Fixes

  • Enumeration field names are used in creating language specific models in the CodeGen engine and usage of special characters can cause issues in this code generation process.
  • Treat enumeration field names different from the default values. Use only default values for placing the actual enumeration value and use the name property to provide a user-friendly and code-friendly name for the enumeration field.
  • Remove all special characters from the enumeration field name to avoid this issue.
