Enable runtime duplicate envelope check in Config Center

As part of new partner onboardings for all SCBN customers, Implementation team will create envelopes with client and partner EDI ID's on config center and there is always risk of creating duplicate envelopes because of incorrect information from client or human errors. Currently, we need to manually check with sender/receiver EDI ID's to identify the duplicate envelopes. There are many instances where client reported hundreds of failures due to duplicate envelope issues. My idea is to enable duplicate envelope check at the run time of creating/cloning new envelope and application shouldn't allow duplicate envelope to save/deploy in the system. This feature really helps our implementation team and clients to avoid hundreds of failures in the production system.
