Create a Reference using JSON expression extractor

We are looking for a new feature to create a reference using JSON expression instead of Regular expression. And also at rules file.
All our upcoming applications are developed using JSON requests and responses, which are changing dynamically for each release and we are not able to reuse our scripts. We have tried auto correlation for JSON and it's not working as expected. I had discussions with PaulLiskayHCL on this he suggested we use rules to overcome this. As part of POC with other tools(JMeter), we found writing JSON expressions are easy using So it will save a lot of time at the time of manual correlation. Please let me know if you need any more information on this. And also we are happy discuss on this. Thanks!
