Suggested Fixes

  • Add missing version property in the Info Object.
  • Make sure that the version property value is not null or empty.
  • The value should indicate the version of the OpenAPI document you are currently drafting. If you are unsure, simply set the value to '1.0'.
  • This version is not the same as the OpenAPI standard version or your API's version.
