The option to configure save-on-auto-sync is missing in the Device Management GUI.


You will need to have TMSH access to the BIG-IP system to perform this task.


Devices configured in a DSC configuration. Automatic with Full or Incremental Sync is enabled. You attempt to configure the save-on-auto-sync option from the GUI.


You will need to have TMSH access to the BIG-IP system to perform this task.

Fix Information

This release adds per-device-group save_on_auto_sync flag to GUI: flag now shows in GUI and correctly saves. GUI: The "Sync Type" option in the GUI must be set to "Automatic with Full/Incremental Sync" in order for "Save on Auto-Sync" option to show.

Behavior Change

Beginning in version 11.5.0, the /cm trust-domain 'save-on-auto-sync' attribute is no longer configured as part of the trust-domain, but is part of the configuration of a device group. With this change, the option to set that attribute becomes available in the GUI on the condition that the "Sync Type" option is set to "Automatic with Full/Incremental Sync".
