Project does not exist

Roles are project specific. If you attempt to get a role in a project which does not exist you will get the following response.

    "logId": "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000",
    "message": "There are validation errors getting the role",
    "data": [
            "field": "projectId",
            "message": "The project does not exist"
    "type": "Validation"
