Config Schema

It's possible to use a selector (opens in a new tab) that starts with allowed ASTNode names which are described below.

Paste or drop code into the editor in ASTExplorer (opens in a new tab) and inspect the generated AST to compose your selector.

Example: pattern property FieldDefinition[parent.name.value=Query] will match only fields for type Query.
