Bug ID 421648: APM Windows Machine Info session variables incorrect in documentation

Last Modified: May 29, 2024

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

Known Affected Versions:
11.1.0, 11.2.0, 11.2.1, 11.3.0, 11.4.0

Fixed In:
11.5.0, 11.4.1

Opened: May 22, 2013

Severity: 5-Cosmetic


The online help and Configuration Guide for BIG-IP Access Policy Manager state the session variable names for the Machine Info action incorrectly, as session.machine_info.<attribute>. The correct session variable names are session.windows_machine_info.<attribute>.


Users who write expressions can use the incorrect session variables and write expressions that do not work.


Online help states the session variable names incorrectly in BIG-IP APM 11.1.0, 11.2.0, 11.2.1, 11.3.0, and 11.4.0. (Note: in 11.4.0, the Machine Info action is called the Windows Machine Info action instead.) The configuration guides for those versions also state the session variable names incorrectly.


Use session variables named session.windows_machine_info.<attribute>.
