-- 'ACCESS::session sid' will returns empty. -- 'ACCESS::session data get <varname>' returns empty.


iRules may not work as expected.


-- Using IP-based sessions -- ACCESS::session iRule commands in a serverside iRule event, such as HTTP_PROXY_CONNECT. -- Using SSL Bypass. Note: This issue is known to occur when using SSL Bypass, but this is not the only configuration that exhibits the problem.


There is no workaround at this time.
