Bug ID 1558857: Pool command support functionality to be implemented in WS_REQUEST event

Last Modified: Jun 13, 2024

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

Known Affected Versions:
16.1.0, 16.1.1, 16.1.2,,, 16.1.3,,,,,, 16.1.4,,,, 17.1.0,,,, 17.1.1,,,

Opened: Mar 07, 2024

Severity: 3-Major


We can create the following iRule in BIG-IP with the pool command. However, the iRule does not work as expected. when WS_REQUEST { log local0. "using myHttpOss2" pool myHttpOss2 }


It limits the user functionality, and they cannot write the irules according to their need.


Create an iRule with a WS_REQUEST event and include pool command in it.


Whatever is supported in HTTP_REQUEST should be supportable in WS_REQUEST also. Even though we cannot use the pool command in WS_REQUEST, the purpose can be achieved using the HTTP_REQUEST event.
