Symptoms

BIG-IP supports a naming format for some objects where you can use an IP address. BIG-IQ seems not to handle this. For instance a self-ip can be names "10.9.91.254", however it does not support adding the CIDR to the end like this: 10.9.91.254_24 That is a valid Self IP name on BIG-IP and works for other objects that require IP and Masks.

Impact

BIG-IQ cannot create these objects using a name with <ip>_<port> format.
