To Create Multiple Routing Channels with Multiple Routing Channel Templates

Looping feature would be required to support a dynamic number of routing channels (RCs) to be created by partner. Since each RC creation requires an API to be called we need the ability to call the same API n times with the mapping updating each time to create the n routing channels.
