Opened: Mar 31, 2014

Severity: 4-Minor


in VPE %xx symbols might invalidly decode If user assignment string contains percent encoded symbols like: "%60", "%7E", "%21", "%40", "%23" etc Saved string is written properly but re-readed and displayed as character "`", "~", "!", "@", "#" Therefore new saving might cause uneeded re-encoding of such symbols


Medium. Customer is confused and might not be able to modify saved and then loaded string


Variable assign agent. Assigned string contains %xx symbol


1. Direct bigip.conf editing 2. Saving proper string in other location and copy paste before modification so %xx encoded symbols would stay preserved

Fix Information

Issue fixed, encoding doesn't reencode/redecode symbols anymore.
