Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IQ Applications(all modules)

Opened: Jul 19, 2021
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

If an AS3 Deployment fails when importing LTM Service from BIG-IP, a confusing error message is presented if the BIG-IP system is managed by BIG-IQ. If the BIG-IP system is not managed by BIG-IQ, the error is "... Device not found in device group: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Device not found in device group..." If the BIG-IP system is managed by BIG-IQ, the error is "... User is not permitted to create an application on this device: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: User is not permitted to create an application on this device..."

Impact

AS3 Deployment fails with an error message that implies a permissions issue has occurred, but the actual issue is that the BIG-IP system cannot look up the LTM Service.

Conditions

-- LTM Service is not discovered during AS3 deployment -- The BIG-IP system is managed by a BIG-IQ system
