What: generate .pidl files automatically

Why: CI/CD for PASOE

At the 2019 PUG Challenge Americas conference, we discussed CI/CD pipelines for PASOE services. Currently, when using the Data Object REST model, there is no command line utility available to generate .pidl files automatically. This can only be done through mouse point-and-click in PDSOE. It was suggested this was a bug and to submit an issue accordingly. Without any such utility, we are unable to implement a CI/CD pipeline for Data Object REST services for PASOE.

The case owner at Progress suggested this was better suited as an Idea in this forum.
