Bug ID 551836: TMSH escaping of quotes did not behave properly

Last Modified: Dec 07, 2023

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

Opened: Oct 09, 2015

Severity: 3-Major


In TMSH when adding any item with a quote, the quote is escaped properly, causing quotes to be lost. For example if you add a string: "\"This is an example\"" GUI display: "This is an example" tmsh display: This is an example


This can impact iApps for the iApps that consume string data from tmsh if the string data has quotes in it.


String fields that contain quotes displayed in tmsh


Before this fix, you could save escape characters in the GUI, but not in TMSH.
