HTTP Class profiles globs are upgraded to a policy with a contains condition when it should be equals. The upgrade process will succeed, but the policy will not use the correct syntax.


After the upgrade to 11.4.x, The policy will match more than the HTTP Class profile did. Network traffic will be impacted.


A UCS or config with HTTP Class profiles containing globs for matching must be applied to 11.4.0 or 11.4.1 to encounter this state. The UCS must be from 11.3.x or earlier.


Manually modify policies with the incorrect condition after upgrading to 11.4.x.

Fix Information

The policy condition now converts properly from an HTTP class to an LTM policy and the ultimate behavior is identical to that of the previous release.

Behavior Change
