REST Request node (outbound) should support Open API 3.0 Spec

REST Request node (outbound) still supports only Swagger 2.0 in V12, do not support Open API 3.0 specification. OpenAPI (v3) is becoming a defacto standard for consuming web APIs and this contains several new features and improvements in terms of syntax . And it clearly mentioned in the V12- toolkit (Rest Request node) to select the swagger 2.0 version file. And we have customer's requirement to consume the swagger file developed in Open API 3.0 spec. I hereby request for an implementation of OpenAPI -v3 which is already used by a lot of api management tools in the market.

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request which we agree would be a great enhancement for the product. We have previously discussed this future possible enhancement as part of our Early Experience Program, but it's always nice to have an idea defined in order to track the request and gather feedback from others who are not on that program so thank you very much for submitting the request. Status is updated to Future Consideration.
