After upgrade to version 13.1.0 or later, ASM GUI fails to display the Policy List.


ASM GUI starting using the REST API from version 13.1.0, so any systems that have been affected by this issue on a previous version now cause the GUI to fail to display the Policy List.


Using an 11.5.0 to 11.5.4-HF1 version that is affected by the issue of policies with duplicate REST IDs that occurred after restoring from policy history or using Policy Diff to compare policies.


On the device run the following script: --------------------------------- perl -MF5::DbUtils -MF5::Utils::Rest -MF5::ASMConfig::Entity::Policy -e '$dbh = F5::DbUtils::get_dbh(); $dbh->begin_work(); $dbh->do("UPDATE PLC.PL_POLICIES a SET a.rest_uuid = \"\" WHERE a.rest_uuid IN ( SELECT rest_uuid FROM (SELECT rest_uuid FROM PLC.PL_POLICIES GROUP BY rest_uuid having count(*) > 1) b)"); F5::Utils::Rest::populate_uuids(dbh => $dbh); $dbh->commit();' --------------------------------- Note: In a management environment, this change must be pushed to the peer as a full sync. The easiest way to do so is to ensure that the ASM sync device group is in manual sync mode, and to push the config to the peers from the device where the script was run.

Fix Information

This data inconsistency is now repaired on upgrade, and the GUI loads the policy list successfully.
