URL dos attacks may be detected, even if the URLs mitigation is not marked and detection criteria is not configured. A workaround can be to configure very high numbers at the URL detection criteria, and then un-mark the URL mitigation.
False detection of DoS attack.
This can occur if you have only an IP based rate limit.
A possible workaround would be to set higher value for the URL detection criteria (check a url mitigation to make the detection criteria visible in the GUI, change the values and uncheck it back).
