Opened: Oct 31, 2015

Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

Introduction of mgmt module to allow access to REST framework resources opened up two ways to do the same thing by exposing public modules registered by iControl REST.

Impact

Having two ways to do the same thing is confusing. iControl REST modules should not be exposed by mgmt module (As it already exposed in tmsh directly - ltm, gtm, apm, sys, cm, etc)

Conditions

This was introduced on version 12.0

Workaround

None

Fix Information

None
