Workaround

To work around this problem, you can click the Apply Access Policy link to turn off this notification. Alternatively, you can modify the iApp script by putting the command "tmsh modify apm profile access <NAME> generation-action increment" into a different transaction. You can do this by creating a shell script from the iApp script: 1. The shell script consists of two lines: sleep <SAY 5 SECONDS> tmsh modify apm profile access <NAME> generation-action increment 2. In the iApp script, execute the shell script in the background.
