Severity: 2-Critical


An ASM Policy cannot be created in a non-default (/Common) partition using the Import Policy Task (/mgmt/tm/asm/tasks/import-policy).


Policy is created in /Common instead of the specified partition.


User attempts to create a new ASM policy in a non-/Common partition using a file or template via the import policy tasks.


1) Create a Policy in the desired partition via a POST to the /mgmt/tm/asm/policies endpoint. 2) Execute the Import Policy Task (/mgmt/tm/asm/tasks/import-policy) using the created policy as the policyReference to overwrite it.

Fix Information

Policy Import creates new policies in the specified partition.
