Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP All(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
12.1.0, 12.1.0 HF1, 12.1.0 HF2, 12.1.1, 12.1.1 HF1, 12.1.1 HF2

Fixed In:
13.0.0, 12.1.2

Opened: Sep 12, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

In Big-IP 12.x versions before 12.1.2 invalid requests to a REST endpoint were being recorded in the FINE level logs, making it difficult to audit when an invalid request to a REST endpoint was coming in. In version 12.1.2, the log level was changed to INFO so that these messages are more easily consumed by users attempting to audit the log.

Impact

Auditing the REST Framework logs is more difficult, requiring you to look at messages logged at the FINE level.

Conditions

Any request made to an invalid REST endpoint will trigger a log message at the FINE level indicating that a request came in to an invalid REST endpoint.

Workaround

Users can increase the log level of the REST Framework to FINE by making the following change to the file '/etc/restjavad.log.conf': Before: .level=FINE After: .level=INFO

Fix Information

This message is included in the INFO log level on BIG-IP v12.1.2.
