7986 Fixed - When converting a policy from BIG-IP, collections with wildcardOrder, such as “urls”, may result with the default “*” element being in the wrong order relative to the other wildcard entries. This lead to unexpected and incorrect policy enforcement. convert-policy now writes these elements in the correct order. Importing a policy with an unexpected order also works as expected.
