Opened: May 14, 2015
Severity: 3-Major


Some REST calls that affect Security policies should be persistent to BIG-IP config files after their completion (create, delete, association to virtual servers, and changing language encoding), but are not.


If the device is restarted configuration may be lost.


REST API is being used to manage Security Policies.


Any other action that will persist configuration (like an ASM config change through the GUI, or any LTM configuration change).

Fix Information

Configuration is now correctly persisted when required after ASM REST actions.
