[extensions.filters.http.composite.v3.Composite proto]

Composite filter config. The composite filter config allows delegating filter handling to another filter as determined by matching on the request headers. This makes it possible to use different filters or filter configurations based on the incoming request.

This is intended to be used with ExtensionWithMatcher where a match tree is specified that indicates (via ExecuteFilterAction) which filter configuration to create and delegate to.

[extensions.filters.http.composite.v3.ExecuteFilterAction proto]
