<#
    .SYNOPSIS
        Extract details from a User Interface Security file
         
    .DESCRIPTION
        Extracts and partitions the security details from an User Interface Security file into the same structure as AOT security files
         
    .PARAMETER FilePath
        Path to the User Interface Security XML file you want to work against
         
    .PARAMETER OutputDirectory
        Path to the folder where the cmdlet will output and structure the details from the file.
        The cmdlet will create a sub folder named like the input file.
         
        Default value is: "C:\temp\d365fo.tools\security-extraction"
         
    .EXAMPLE
        PS C:\> Export-D365SecurityDetails -FilePath C:\temp\d365fo.tools\SecurityDatabaseCustomizations.xml
         
        This will grab all the details inside the "C:\temp\d365fo.tools\SecurityDatabaseCustomizations.xml" file and extract that into the default path "C:\temp\d365fo.tools\security-extraction"
         
    .NOTES
        Author: Mötz Jensen (@splaxi)
