When using objects as maps (see: in props, I seem to be getting 'missing in props validation' errors on all of the keys in the map. Is this intended behaviour or a bug?

type Field = {
    value: string,
    error: string,

type Form = {
    fields: {
        [string]: Field,
    formError: string,

type Props = {
    bankDetails: Form,
    onBankDetailsUpdate: any => void,

const Provider = (props:Props) =>
                label={'Account Name'}
                {/* bankDetails.fields.accountName is missing in props validation */}
                {/* bankDetails.fields.accountName.value is missing in props validation */}
                {/* bankDetails.fields.accountName is missing in props validation */}
                {/* bankDetails.fields.accountName.error is missing in props validation */}
                onChange={newVal => props.onBankDetailsUpdate({ accountName: newVal })}

In propTypes, nested objects are invalid unless they're PropTypes.shapes. I assume nested objects in Flow types are valid for Flow.

If so, this sounds like a bug.

I am also experiencing this.

To get around if for the moment I have added the following to my .eslintrc:

"react/prop-types": ["error", { "ignore": ["my_prop_key_that_uses_object_map"]}],
