This rule belongs to the
input-file-validation ruleset and states that:
A file provided must be in a recognized format. The format could be an API description format like OpenAPI, Swagger, API Blueprint, RAML, Postman, Insomnia, WSDL, WADL etc. or a data description format like JSON, JSON Schema, YAML, XML, XML Schema, etc. or a documentation format like Markdown or text .txt.
|Message||File format could not be recognized or is not supported.|
|Broad Category||File I/O Content|
- Ensure that the file is in one of the supported formats only.
- Ensure that the file is either a supported API description format, data description format or a documentation format.
- Make sure that the file contents are complete as that can hinder identification.
