Support for token authentication

Some of REST APIs for IBM products have token authentication implemented. I.e., call a sign in API to get a token, and then use the token in a HTTP Header for all other API calls.

Example Products:

IBM Sterling Secure Proxy: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SS6PNW_3.4.3/com.ibm.help.ssp.apis.doc/CommonFiles/rest_api_request_headers.html

IBM Connect Direct: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SS4PJT_5.3.0/cd_webservices/cd_webservices_restfulapi/authenticating_rest.html

PEM currently does not support this form of authentication in API configuration and API dialogs.
