Are you wanting to add global roles or project roles? Context roles are project roles. Regardless, since I usually know exactly what roles I am trying to programmatically grant, I usually hard code the role id string and use it as the parameter of the method that grants the roles. For example with project role:
securityService.addContextRoleToUser(userId, "project_user", contextId);

However, if you are talking about retrieving a list of global roles, this method works:
var globals = securityService.getGlobalRoles();
