Opened: Jul 28, 2016

Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

tmsh provides a command option for admin to delete all URLs from a custom category. However, this is not a valid option, and an error will be displayed. The system presents the following error: Configuration error: Cannot delete url (http://www.example.com*). This occurs because because url-category (/Common/ex) is a custom category. A custom category must have at least one URL.

Impact

No URLs are deleted. Each URL must be deleted individually.

Conditions

Running the following command: tmsh modify sys url-db url-category pattern urls delete { all }

Workaround

Delete URLs individually.

Fix Information

None
