Fixed In:

Opened: Nov 07, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Requests for X-F5-Auth-Token fail when a TMUI view is loaded that requires a X-F5-Auth-Token used for REST requests.

Impact

GUI cannot retrieve F5-Auth-Token for REST requests

Conditions

On startup if the tmos login provider takes too long to become available it will cause the login provider to be unavailable, and requests for auth tokens will fail. This is a race condition and happens intermittently. Typically on lower end devices.

Workaround

bigstart restart restjavad

Fix Information

Added retry to add login provider if unavailable.
