After upgrade multiple entries with the same policy name appeared in the ASM policy list.


This appears to be a display issue only, and does not affect enforcement or performance. There are no actual duplicate policies in the system, the GUI is only displaying two rows for the affected policies. REST is also affected, which will cause problems for BIG-IQ management of a device that encountered this error.


A system where multiple Policy history entries exist with the same revision number for the same policy undergoes upgrade. It is not clear how a device gets into this state.


To repair the state for that policy, make a minor change in an affected policy (e.g., updating the Description), and then run Apply Policy.

Fix Information

ASM now correctly displays one entry per policy.
