Suggested Fixes

  • If your GET operation is expected to return some data in the response body, ensure that the response definition has a content mapping defined using the content property.
  • If content is defined, ensure that the map is not empty and contains at least one entry.
  • If your GET operation is not expected to have a response body, you should ignore this lint check or disable it.
