Fixed In:

Opened: Dec 29, 2014
Severity: 4-Minor


There is a terminology inconsistency in how the GUI in AFM 11.5.0 IP Intelligence, which refers to 'Black List Classes', and AFM 11.6.0 IP Intelligence, which refers to 'Black List Categories'. In addition, viewing 11.6.0 labels on Reporting or Event Logs for IP Intelligence reads 'Class', where they should read 'Category'.


Inconsistent terminology might result in customer confusion.


This occurs when comparing AFM screens in 11.5.0 and 11.6.0.



Fix Information

Black List Classes is now correctly referred to as Black List Categories in AFM 11.6.0 IP Intelligence, which makes the term consistent across the GUI versions.
