Automatic AS2 partner onboarding

Client requires automatic batch AS2 partner onboarding. If we had all
the required info for creating AS2 partner in custom DB, we would pull
that info from DB to automatically create AS2 partner in SI/SFG.
1)So far in REST API we do not see options specific for AS2 partner.
a.Is there AS2 REST API support?
b.Will there be REST API support for AS2 in some soon released fix?
2)We also tried different approach that would solve our problem if we
knew how to generate SI/SFG IDs.
We exported existing AS2 partner, and then based on that export tried
creating modified export for new AS2 partner, and then importing it
automatically in SI. However in this approach we have problem with ID
PARTNER_PROFILE_ID, OUT_CONTRACT_ID, We are not sure how to generate
those. And there are lots of them. Here are some examples of IDs:



a.Do you maybe know how to generate IDs in SI?
b.Which Java class/method to use to generate those IDs?
3)Would you recommend some other way to automate batch AS2 partner on
boarding in SI/SFG?
4)Is it possible to automate batch AS2 partner on boarding in SI/SFG?
5)Closest that we could get so far is semi-automation. Creating some
of properties with REST API, and requiring AS2 partner specific parts
to be entered manually.
