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

An example for a header can be provided in two ways: either directly in the Header Object using the example/examples property or in the Schema Object definition when specifying the header level schema property. If an example is provided at both levels, the Header Object level example will override the Schema Object level example.

Suggested Fixes

  • If the header schema level example adds no new example value as compared to the one at Header Object level, remove the schema level example property.
