Filter and validate option in stub needs to be configurable

Currently when we record HTTP events and create a stub, automatically all the fields gets enabled with filter condition and if there are some optional fields or we want to validate some fields instead of filter, it is really difficult especially if the payload is very big.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    Based on the payload, we want to decide whether we should enable filter on parent or validate specific field, at present all the XML elements are added as filter and assuming we want to implement regular expressions etc and if the payload is bigger, it takes really long time to make the changes.

    If we have an editor which the complete xml properly and if there is an option to enable filter/validate, it will reduce our operational efforts.

    We will be looking at ways we can make editing messages less opinionated, which will help with working with optional fields, large message payloads, etc.

    In terms of the request to make it easier to validate an incoming message for a stub, could you please share the use case for this?
