This rule belongs to the openapi-v3-standards-linting ruleset and states that:

The Responses Object supports explicit response codes as well as response ranges. If a response is defined using an explicit code and a response range definition also exists for the same code, the explicit code definition takes precedence over the range definition.

Suggested Fixes

  • If the explicit code definition does not vary from the response range definition, you can safely remove the explicit code definition.
