Error description

  • When multiple API's match the same path the test tool may fail
    to route the request resulting in CORS errors observed from the
    test tool and being unable to test from the test tool.
    
    In such circumstances the API should still work when you invoke
    from another client (eg. CURL, POSTMAN, etc)
    
    The three criteria to trigger this issue are:
       1.More than one API candidates are matched for the incoming
    request.
    
       2.All these candidates are configured with security
    requirements.
    
       3.Using the test tool from the browser, which will trigger
    the OPTIONS HTTP request (the CORS preflight request) WITHOUT
    security related headers.
