As an admin, I would like to be able to specify the ID of a gallery data connection

We are constantly moving workflows from our Dev environment up to Prod and then back down again to improve them.  Even though we only used Gallery shared data connections, and both environments have the same name for each connection; the connections still break when opening the workflow in the other environment.  This is because designer actually uses an ID code behind the string name instead of the name.  And, even though connections exist by the same name in each environment, the code behind them is different.


I would like a way to be able to specify the data connection code so that I can make the code the same in both environments.

This is something that would help us as well. Please convert gallery connection IDs to be aliases instead of system id with random characters so that we can use workflow migration between the environments.

thank you
