allow_explicit_policy_id

As of v2.1, by default, in a Pro installation, Tyk will load Policy IDs and use the internal object-ID as the ID of the policy. This is not portable in cases where the data needs to be moved from installation to installation.

If you set this value to true, then the id parameter in a stored policy (or imported policy using the REST API of the Dashboard), will be used instead of the internal ID.

This option should only be used when transporting an installation to a new database.
