I just discovered that it is possible to user /rest/resource endpoint to create 
a WMS service configuration file in a workspace. See the docs here: 

A PUT request with the settings file in the body 
(https://gist.github.com/arbakker/c9ca04dc5c2d9b1c9b697329fda7ef50) at 
/rest/resource/workspaces/cite/wms.xml, will create the wms.xml settings file 
in the cite workspace folder. After reloading the configuration, through 
/rest/reload a workspace specific service is created. 

For this to work I need to reliably generate the WMS service ID:

Does anyone know what requirements the id needs to fulfil for it to be valid?

Kind regards,
