    Hi @S, Chandra Mohan

    It can be any valid GUID, which requires you to customize its value, but it must conform to the GUID format.

    For example:

    "id": "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000", // Replace with a valid GUID

    Hope this helps.

    If you are creating a new role, the ID value would be a GUID you generate. Otherwise, provide the GUID of existing role (do make sure to include all existing ones in your request, as it effectively overwrites the manifest).

    If you're creating a new AppRole entirely, then, this is purely a random GUID that you can generate using any method (in a format similar to the other AppRoles already present in your tenant) and assign it to the "id" field.
