CA API: Ability to Fetch Binary Information

WAS API: Added OAUTH2 Support in the Authentication Records
/qps/rest/3.0/search/was/webappauthrecord
/qps/rest/3.0/get/was/webappauthrecord/
/qps/rest/3.0/create/was/webappauthrecord
/qps/rest/3.0/update/was/webappauthrecord/

With this release, we now support OAuth2 for authenticating your Swagger/Open API file during WAS scans. You just need to configure OAuth2 details in the authentication records to scan your API files using OAuth2. Note that an OAuth2 record is only used for the authentication of the Swagger/Open API file.

WAS API: Create Report API to Use Default Template for Reports

Currently, you need to provide either a template ID or display and filter information when generating a report via Create Report API. Henceforth, you can generate a report without the template ID or display and filter information. In such a case, we will use the default template based on the type of the report to generate the report.
