Severity: 3-Major


Some BIG-IP Access Policy objects have no description field in tmsh, but they do have Description field in the GUI. When defining the Description field in the GUI, the content is lost upon upgrade.


Cannot use tmsh to specify the description. If there is a description specified using the GUI, that definition is lost upon upgrade.


-- Using tmsh. -- Various Access Policy objects. Here are some examples of the GUI counterparts: + Secure connectivity profile (Access Policy :: Secure Connectivity). + Active Directory trusted domains (Access Policy :: AAA Servers :: Active Directory Trusted Domains). + Microsoft Exchange (Access Policy :: Application Access :: Microsoft Exchange). + AAA Servers :: Endpoint Management Systems + SSO Configurations :: HTTP Basic + SSO Configurations :: NTLMV1 + SSO Configurations :: NTLMV2 + SSO Configurations :: Kerberos + SSO Configurations :: Forms + SAML :: BIG-IP IdP Automation



Fix Information

There are now description fields in tmsh for these BIG-IP objects, so any configured content is retained during upgrade.
