Add ability to specify SNI value in TLS Client Profiles

This is a requirement for API Connect Reserved Instance.

I would like to be able to specify an SNI value with a TLS client profile.

When I configure a TLS client profile in API Manager there is a tick box for "Support Server Name Indication (SNI)", but I believe this uses the "target-url" from the API as the SNI. It would be useful if there was an option to specify an alternative SNI value to pass with the TLS connection.

I think ideally this would be more suitable to be added as a field in the TLS client profile - ie along with the "Support Server Name Indication (SNI)" tick box there was an optional field to specify a specific SNI value to include with the TLS profile.

Alternatively it could be included in the API designer "invoke" section - ie along with "tls-profile" and "target-url".
