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

The XML wrapped definition takes effect only when defined alongside type being array (outside the items). This means that the property wrapped in the xml definition must be used only if the schema type is set as array.

Suggested Fixes

  • Ensure that if wrapped is used, the schema in which the XML information is provided has a type set as array.
  • If your schema instance is not expected to have multiple elements i.e. it is not an array schema, consider removing the property wrapped from the XML definition outside the items schema.
  • If your XML data can have multiple element occurrences for the current schema definition, consider changing the schema type to array.
