Suggested Fixes

  • Ensure that the value of type in the Schema Object is not set to a value other than number or integer.
  • Type names are compared in a case-sensitive manner.
  • If you use the multipleOf keyword, ensure that the data instance you intend to validate can be a number or integer.
  • If the type of the instance can vary i.e. it can be an number/integer or some other type, consider removing the type keyword to allow any types. If you use the oneOf/anyOf constructs instead, consider moving the multipleOf to the oneOf/anyOf schema that has the type set as number or integer.
