When attempting to use the API gmd_formula_pub.insert_formula to create formulas and are passing release_type = 3 ‘Automatic by Step’.

The API failed to create formula with "Invalid release type" error message. Please see below for error message.
        Error Message: Release type for formula/ version  formulaname/version is invalid.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. API gmd_formula_pub.insert_formula
2.Validating Release type in GME_LOOKUPS and type='RELEASE_TYPE' and found that there is no entry for 'Automatic by Step' in lookup.
 Below are the entries exists in RELEASE_TYPE LOOKUP:
------------------      -------------------------------------------
------------------      -------------------------------------------
0                         Automatic Release
1                         Manual Release
2                         Incremental Release
