There is a minor regression introduced to the functionality of the 'one-line' option. The symptom will show as added spaces and newline characters where there should not be any extras. This behavior only happens on association list configuration items that use custom sorting methods. This includes things like the rules or related rules properties of a Virtual Server, or the rules of an HTML Profile item.


With the introduction of this regression, most systems will remain unaffected; however, a user may run into issues with scripts that expect a single line of input or custom parsers that are not expecting the extra \n or spaces.


This only presents itself when the one-line option is specified during a tmsh list operation and the object being listed contains an association list. ltm virtual: rules, related-rules ltm profile html: rules


There is no direct workaround for this issue, but scripts and parsers may be updated to expect or filter out extra whitespace characters and extra newline characters in the output.

Fix Information

tmsh list with the one-line option now displays on one line for all objects as expected.
