Using tmsh to create ACL entries causes the source and destination IP addresses to default to Host type set to ::/128. This is different behavior compared to UI where the default is 'Any'.


Unless source and destination IP addresses is specified, ACL entries created in TMSH will not default to 'Any'. IP address will be default set to ::/128.


ACL entries created using tmsh


This issue has no workaround at this time.

Fix Information

When creating ACL entries via tmsh, the source and destination addresses will now have the correct default of 'any'.
