At least one 200, 201, 202, or 204 response should be defined for PUT operations

Description

PUT operations in your API must have at least one 200, 201, 202, or 204 response defined.

For more details, see RFC 7231.

Example

The following is an example of how this type of risk could look in your API definition:

"put": {
    ...
    "responses": {
      "default": {
        "description": "Unexpected error",
        "schema": {
          "$ref": "#/definitions/Error"
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Possible exploit scenario

Attackers strive to make your APIs behave in an unexpected way to learn more about your system or to cause a data breach. We highly recommend that you minimize any risks and clearly specify the data that your API operations can return for each possible response code.

Remediation

Define 200, 201, 202, or 204 responses for all PUT operations.

"put": {
    ...
    "responses": {
      "204": {
       "description": "Updated"
      }
      "default": {
        "description": "Unexpected error",
        "schema": {
          "$ref": "#/definitions/Error"
        }
      }
    }
  }
}
