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

A request resource with method GET must not define a body (i.e. the request payload). This is because such methods do not expect a body and, therefore, all related information will be ignored automatically during import/transformations in APIMatic.

Maximum SeverityWarning
MessageRequest resource with method GET has defined body which will be ignored.

Suggested Fixes

  • Open the Body dropdown in the Insomnia app request and select No Body or an equivalent option from the list. Save and export your file again.
