Suggested Fixes

  • Ensure that your Responses Object contains at least one entry.
  • If you are looking to add a single entry it should represent the expected status code when the current request/operation on the API service is successful.
  • If you are unsure, add 200 as the response code and define its corresponding Response Object.
  • Ensure that the entry uses a valid HTTP status code or use 'default' instead.
  • The Responses Object is expected to cover important successful responses and error cases.
