Hi,

How could I add a new role via REST API ?

When I try to send the following HTTP POST via Postman:

URL: https://localhost:8089/services/authorization/roles?name=newrole

Method: POST

Authorization: Basic -credentials-, where -credentials- is
the base64 encoding of ID and password joined by a colon.

I got: Cannot perform action "POST" without a target name to act on.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<response>
    <messages>
        <msg type="ERROR">Cannot perform action "POST" without a target name to act on.</msg>
    </messages>
</response>

What does target name refer to? And how could I set the value in order to get the HTTP POST request to work ?
