Setting the field "Policy URL" from variable/property

The IIB MQ nodes (MQInput, MQOutput, etc.) reference an MQEndpoint policy by the "Policy URL" property, whose value can now be set as a string only.
We need that the "Policy URL" property's value could also be set by using / including values from variables too (e.g. by inheriting an IntegrationServer property, etc.), so that the URL is dynamically composed when the msgflow starts and the specific MQpolicy is eventually referenced.

    Thank you for raising this RFE. IBM agrees that this enhancement sounds like it would make an excellent addition to the product's capabilities. With the advancements made in the Policy arena in ACEv11, this is very much on our radar for future evolution. We would be particularly interested in users thoughts on how the externals for this suggestion could be implemented ... for example rather than making the name of the policy itself dynamic, perhaps we should consider making individual policy properties dynamic (or rather abstracted from the policy itslef via reference to a variable) ... also it would be good to know users views on where/how the variables should be assigned values - we think perhaps in the server.conf.yaml file.
    Status of this RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
