Symptoms

The iControl REST API cannot be used for creating users in non-Common partitions.

Impact

The system posts an error, and no user is created.

Conditions

This happens using iControl to create users in the non-Common partition.

Workaround

Use tmsh or the Configuration utility to create users in the non-Common partition. The correct syntax to be used is as follows: # curl -sk -u <user>:<password> -X POST -H "Content-type: application/json" -d '{"name":"homer","password":"homer","partitionAccess":[{"name":"part","role":"operator"}]}' https://<bigip>/mgmt/tm/auth/user?$filter=partition%20eq%20part

Fix Information
