Last Modified: Sep 13, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP ASM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
12.0.0, 12.1.0 HF1, 12.1.0 HF2, 12.1.1 HF1, 12.1.1 HF2, 12.1.2 HF1, 12.1.2 HF2

Fixed In:
12.1.0, 12.0.0 HF1

Opened: Aug 12, 2015

Severity: 3-Major


The option to choose whether updated signatures start in staging on a policy moved from being system wide to per policy. This option was not included in the XML export of the policy and will therefore not be persisted across export/import if changed from the default.


The value for placing updated signatures in staging will revert to the disabled state. This also affects Policy Templates if such a setting is desired to be a new custom template, since this is based on XML export/import.


The option to place updated signatures in staging is enabled and the policy is exported/imported via XML.


The setting can be changed again after the XML policy is imported.

Fix Information

Policies that have selected to put updated signatures in staging will correctly persist this value across XML export/import.
