Reference ACL from frontend in backend

Is it possible to reference an ACL that you created in the frontend in a backend ?

I have a few backends that rely on the same ACL so instead of creating it multiple times in each backend I’d like to create one ACL that can be shared among all the backends.

No, the ACL needs be where you want to use it.

A declaration in the default section is not supported unfortunately. What do you use the ACL for?
