Identity Applications REST API to support additional attributes for Roles

related to:
SR#101267828891
and
https://community.microfocus.com/t5/Identity-Manager-User/Create-Roles-via-REST-API-with-quot-otherAttributes-quot-or-quot/td-p/2705005

Creation of Roles via REST API should support adding additional attributes to roles.
In larger environments it is a requirement to have more information available on all levels of Roles, like riks-classification or others.

According to IDApps REST API documentation, the POST (create role) and PUT (modify role) request both have defined JSON elements for that.
However:
It is *not* working for the POST request.
It is working when modifying an existing role with the PUT request, additional attributes can be added. However, currently this is officially not supported.

Please consider enhancing the REST API accordingly and add support for this.
It would help a lot of customers.

Thanks,
Matthias
