Goal

We are developing an application which includes a REST-API that should support the http-method "PATCH".
But when defining resources in the OAM application domain, there is no "PATCH" operation available in the "Operations" section.

Mostly, we choose "All" for setting "Operations Available", and then the HTTP-Method doesn't matter.
But for this website, we already had to configure a separate resource that's only valid for "Operations Available" = "OPTIONS", so for "normal" http requests (excluding OPTIONS), I had to create a second resource and select all other "Operations Available". But that list doesn't include the "PATCH" HTTP-Method.
That means that when a request comes in with the PATCH HTTP-method, OAM denies access to the resource and returns an HTTP-404.

So, how can I include the "PATCH" HTTP-Method in the "Operations Available" list for the resource?
