Bug ID 562553: In some cases Patch Management returns success regardless of policy settings

Last Modified: Sep 13, 2023

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

Known Affected Versions:
10.2.4, 11.6.0, 11.6.1, 11.6.2, 11.6.3,,,,, 11.6.4, 11.6.5,,,

Opened: Dec 11, 2015

Severity: 3-Major


Patch management is always returning 1 as the result


Patch management check always succeeds even if the policy is out of compliance


Use Patch management check in a policy check


Workaround is to update the Policy check on the BIG-IP box. Currently it is only checking the .result field that is incorrectly set to 1 by the client. If you can add the tcl to the policy to check: Session variable 'session.check_software.last.pm.item_1.missing_updates' set to '10' is less than the number of updates that they want - the server will fail the session.
