Default name for sample/new requests created under the listed operations under the Interface node shall include the name of the operation.

Current: Request N
Proposed: Request (<operation name>) N

Interface X
\- Operation A
\- Request (Operation A) 1
\- Request (Operation A) 2
\- Operation B
\- Request (Operation B) 1
\- Request (Operation B) 2

Why:
Currently all new requests are named Request N no matter under which operation they belong. When working with large API's this is very, very annoying since all open requests basically has the same name. Finding a specific request without having to scroll up/down amd expanding the nodes in the project can be very cumbersome. Whith a better default name open requests can be identified a lot faster.
Yes there is a possibility to change the name when creating a new request but typing e.g. the operation name is very efficient, neither is renaming all sample requests created during the WSDL import.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the post. I've added this to our backlog so possibly sometime in the future we will have this implemented.
