Opened: Apr 10, 2018

Severity: 4-Minor


When using the GUI to create a new iRulesLX rule with the extension .tcl as part of the rule name, the GUI will append another .tcl at the end of the file. This is problematic when attempting to view the iRule in the iRulesLX workspace (at Local Traffic :: iRules : LX Workspaces :: <workspace name>).


Cannot view or delete the iRule from the iRulesLX GUI.


-- Creating a new iRulesLX iRule in the GUI. -- Adding the extension .tcl.


Do not name rules with the .tcl extension. The system will do that for you.
