If a cipher rule is changed, and a cipher group that uses the rule is attached to an SSL profile, the change will not take effect until something else on the SSL profile changes.


Unexpected behavior occurs as the user expects the cipher rule change to take effect immediately.


A cipher group is used by an SSL profile, and one of its cipher rules changes.


After changing the cipher rule that's used by a cipher group, make a change to any SSL profile that uses the associated cipher group.

Fix Information

Any changes to a cipher rule or cipher group will take immediate effect.
