After upgrade from 12.x to 13.0.0 (where these new fields were added) or later.


Manually add the properties via tmsh. To do so, follow these steps (substituting your affected log setting for abc in the following example): modify log-setting abc access add { general-log { publisher sys-db-access-publisher } } modify log-setting abc url-filters add { test_logsetting_swg { enabled true publisher sys-db-access-publisher }}

Now it is possible to use the GUI to successfully use and configure log-setting objects that were created with tmsh.
