According to the open api specification on $ref https://swagger.io/specification/#referenceObject - a Schema should honor the URI format defined https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-4.1 - and can use extended characters as long as they are properly URI encoded.
However when defining a schema that uses non ASCII characters, i get a lot of validation errors - even if non ASCII characters are properly URI encoded (pct encoded)
Is this a shortcoming in the tooling, or am i reading the standards wrong?
Solved! Go to Solution.
While there may still be an issue with the reference resolution, your definition is invalid for another reason. The name you've given the schema doesn't conform with the restrictions in the spec.
All the fixed fields declared above are objects that MUST use keys that match the regular expression:
The tools in question are Swagger-Editor, Swagger-Hub, and i guess that swagger UI is a part of both
The behaviour can be reproduced using the following API specification:
