Opened: Oct 22, 2017

Severity: 3-Major


During the process of importing a device where there are hundreds of conflicts between previously discovered objects and the objects found on the incoming device, the conflict resolution UI could appear to hang.


Users had difficulty resolving conflicts and completing the import of the device.


This would occur when the incoming device had hundreds of conflicting differences with items that were previously discovered.


If the system identifies more than 500 conflicting differences, it only allows bulk level resolutions. Users will be able to resolve all conflicts by selecting either USE BIG-IP or USE BIG-IQ. Individual items by item resolution is not allowed.

Fix Information


Behavior Change

Prior to BIG-IQ version 5.4, BIG-IQ attempted to display all conflicts simultaneously. This caused the browser to slow down or lock up. Starting in BIG-IQ version 5.4, BIG-IQ displays only 500 conflicts at a time. If there are more than 500, BIG-IQ returns a message of too many conflicts to display. At this point, select an option to resolve the conflicts without viewing the differences.
