Known Affected Versions:
13.1.0, 13.1.0.1, 13.1.0.2, 13.1.0.3, 13.1.0.4, 13.1.0.5, 13.1.0.6, 13.1.0.7

Fixed In:
14.1.0, 14.0.0, 13.1.0.8

Opened: Mar 15, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Some fields in AVR-profile contain lists of items. Those lists can be set only if the relevant flag is set to 'true'. In case of a flag configuration change, the system must keep the lists as they were and not reset them, so they can be available in case the flag changes back again. Validation settings were created such that the lists flag is set to 'true' by default, but this can cause the load/merge process to break if the list was set, and afterwards the flag was set to 'false'.

Impact

Management load and sync process may not work as expected.

Conditions

Setting the relevant flag to 'false' after creating a list of items. The relevant fields in AVR-profile that have that logic are: -- IPs-list. -- Subnets-list. -- Countries-list. -- URLs-list.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Validation for those fields when the associated flag is set to 'false' will be skipped in a load/merge scenario.
