Write-API for Data-Models to enable Infrastructure as Code

Currently, all elements are manually updated via the UI. However, we would rather like to have a possibility to create entities, kubes, relationships etc. with an API. This would enable us also to provision our data models using infrastructure as code (e.g. Terraform).

As e.g. Terraform can also be used to provision databases (like tables), it would be a great addition to manage the required Board resources next to the provisioning of the database tables.

Example for Grafana where data-sources (~data-reader) also can be directly provisioned via Infrastructure as Code: https://registry.terraform.io/providers/grafana/grafana/latest/docs/resources/data_source

However, for that, we would need a write-API to create, update and delete data-model related resources. Right now, they are only readonly.
