This rule belongs to the swagger-v2-standards-validation ruleset and states that:

The Parameter Object must specify a type for the non-body parameters using the type property. The type identifies the data type of the parameter and must not be null or empty. Possible values are string, number, integer, boolean, array or file. If type information is missing, type string will be assumed by default automatically during import/transformations in APIMatic.
