Severity: 3-Major


Import declarative policy is failing because of unsuccessful retrieval of the HTTPS external link for the open API file which is in use in the declarative policy, the response code 400 Bad Request is displayed.


Import declarative policy is failing.


The proxy server is in use and the proxy.host DB key is configured and the declarative policy is using an external HTTPS link for the open API file.


Use a local file instead of using the external link. For example, if you have a file “my_swagger_file.yaml”, you should use 'file-transfer' task to upload the Swagger file to the BIG-IP, and in the JSON policy it will be used like that: "open-api-files": [ { "link": "file://my_swagger_file.yaml" } ]
