I am returning a 407 http status code from one endpoint, in postman I can see the
407Proxy Authentication Required
response, but in my api swaggerui instead of 407 it is showing as
Code	Details
Failed to fetch.

To cross check this I have created a new api project & directly return the 407 status code, in new project also it is returning the same.

what am I missing here?

What I have tried:

public IActionResult Get()
            return StatusCode((int)HttpStatusCode.ProxyAuthenticationRequired);

Swagger does not attempt to analyze your code to determine every possible response code. You need to tell it which response codes your action can return:

Get started with Swashbuckle and ASP.NET Core | Microsoft Learn[^]

public IActionResult Get()

You can edit your project file to get Visual Studio to analyze your code and issue a warning if your action returns a response code which you haven't documented:
Use web API analyzers | Microsoft Learn[^]

You can also use API conventions if your actions almost always return the same set of responses:

I have already added the [ProducesResponseType(StatusCodes.Status407ProxyAuthenticationRequired)] to my controller.

And you didn't think that was worth mentioning in your question?

Sorry!! Forgot to mention it.

And I suspect you need to add the attribute to your action, not your controller.

yes, at controller action it is already decorated.
For other status code, swagger ui showing correct response. only in case of 407 not showing.

[ProducesResponseType(StatusCodes.Status400BadRequest, Type = typeof(ApiResponse))]
[ProducesResponseType(StatusCodes.Status500InternalServerError, Type = typeof(ApiResponse))]
[ProducesResponseType(StatusCodes.Status401Unauthorized, Type = typeof(ApiResponse))]
[ProducesResponseType(StatusCodes.Status407ProxyAuthenticationRequired, Type = typeof(ApiResponse))]
