Allow the use of host sytem environment variables in server.env: Shell and variable expansion should be supported
System: WebSphere Liberty Profile Actor: Automated deployment relying on config information provided by runtime platform (i.e. linux server or container)
As WebSphere Liberty is heavily used in cloud contexts, configuration options that need to be configured in the server.env file should allow the use of shell variables.
Currently this is not supported: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSAW57_8.5.5/com.ibm.websphere.wlp.nd.doc/ae/twlp_admin_customvars.html
Description: As we do not want to create custom packaged servers that require different config in server.env (e.g. hostName, rack, logDirectory, etc.), it should be able to consume them from the servers environment.
