Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IQ ADC(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
5.2.0, 5.3.0, 5.4.0, 5.4.0 HF1, 5.4.0 HF2

Opened: Oct 27, 2017
Severity: 4-Minor


If a secure field is inherited, the profile will not be flagged on the grid as needing field re-entry. At evaluation, the parent profile with the actual value appears in the warning. Deployment will succeed to the originating device, but it will not succeed to other devices. The originating device has the value for the encrypted field and will succeed, other BIG-IP deployments will not.


Deployments will fail until the secure field is entered on BIG-IQ.


A profile with a secure is imported from a pre-v12 BIG-IP and re-deployed to another BIG-IP. Profiles imported from v12+ BIG-IPs are not affected by this issue.


Enter the secure field on BIG-IQ for the parent profile.
