Suggested Fixes

  • If you do not intend to override any Path Item Object level parameter or the parameter definitions at Path Item level and Operation level are exactly the same, remove the Operation Object level parameter's entry from the parameters property definition.
  • Parameter names are compared in a case-sensitive manner.
