When importing an Access policy in version 15.1.x with the option "Reuse Existing Objects", if the object does not exist, then a new object is created with name format <new Policy Name>-<Existing Object Name in exported access policy> instead of being created with the same name as the object name in the exported access profile. This is different behavior from previous BIG-IP releases.
Reuse Existing Objects setting may add redundant config objects when importing a large number of policies which share the same objects on the source device.
"Reuse existing objects " option is used during access policy import
