Error description

  • If an unexpected and invalid field is received in a SWIFT
    message, subsequent fields are not validated.

    1. Create a Subscriber and apply a SWIFT schema
    2. Set the Body node to ignore additional fields
    3. Run the test and receive a SWIFT message that contains an
    illegal field in the middle of the message
    4. Open the Message Difference window
    
    EXPECTED RESULT:
    
    All fields are validated
    
    
    ACTUAL RESULT:
    
    Fields after the unwanted field do not fail validation
