BIG-IQ removes any configured ASM policies related to a BIG-IP virtual server when you deploy a full LTM configuration or deploy a change for LTM on that virtual server with the ASM policies.


Web application security is disabled on the affected virtual servers.


LTM and ASM services are provisioned and discovered by BIG-IQ while adding a BIG-IP device.


Redeploy BIG-IP virtual servers licensed for ASM and re-import LTM with the auto-generated ASM policy for the virtual server.
