Hi Tushar,

Thanks for contacting Cloudflare Enterprise Support. My name is Samuel and I will be looking into this ticket for you.
I’m sorry to read that you’re experiencing difficulties.

only the following request body media ranges are supported:


Also, if your Swagger file contain a response phase, it is expected that we through an error because it is a known limitation of API Shield at this stage.
