Opened: May 19, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When an iRule is deleted, BIG-IP does not throw error even when it is configured under ACL policy.

Impact

iRule gets deleted without error. Later, the ACL policy won't be able to access the iRule.

Conditions

-- AFM is provisioned -- iRule is configured under an ACL Policy. -- iRule is deleted

Workaround

None

Fix Information

Added validation and an error message when an iRule is deleted which is configured under an ACL policy. "The irule (/Common/iRule1) cannot be deleted because it is in use by a fw_rule (rule1) in Policy (/Common/policy11)."
