OES11g - updateResource script fails to create the Attribute throwing java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

The issue is observed when using the updateResource script to create the Attribute containing colon (:),

while Writing scripts to programmatically manage OES policies using WLS, In order to set values of attributes for a resource.
