Last Modified: Feb 07, 2024

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP ASM(all modules)

Fixed In:
17.1.0, 16.1.4, 15.1.9

Opened: Apr 13, 2022

Severity: 3-Major


The Configuration shown in the GUI for the "Auto detect" Parameter value type is incorrect after certain steps are performed.


You either see unrelated fields, e.g. "Disallow File Upload of Executables" or missing tabs, like Value Meta Characters.


1. Create a default policy 2. Create new a Parameter with "User-input value" as a Parameter Value Type, and "File Upload" as the Data Type. 3. Save the settings above, and go back to the newly created Parameters settings. 4. Change its Parameter Value Type to "Auto detect".


You can save a configuration with "User-input value" as a Parameter Value type, and "Alpha-Numeric" as Data Type, and then set "Auto detect" as Parameter Value Type.
