Opened: May 16, 2017
Severity: 3-Major


Attempting to add a node to the F5 Application Connector Proxy where the node name contains one or more periods (".") results in an error and a failure of the node being added.


Unable to add the node.


This occurs when adding a node to the proxy, and the node name contains a period.


Remove the period from the node name.t

Fix Information

F5 Application Connector Proxy now supports "." in the Node Name field provided it is not the first character in the string and also in the instance ID field. The following regular expression is utilized to determine valid instanceID: /^[a-zA-Z0-9-_][a-zA-Z0-9-._]*$/ and valid node names are determined using the following regex - /^[a-zA-Z_][a-zA-Z0-9-._]*$/
