Opened: Sep 24, 2018
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

APM resource that has 0xfc (u-umlaut) from 8859-15 in description field causes an error in the Visual Policy Editor resource assignment.

Impact

Error on Visual Policy Editor while trying to edit the advanced resource assign agent: Unable to find rootNode 'message' in Load response for 'editActionDialogue'... Dialogue loading has failed.

Conditions

This occurs when you manually edit an APM resource (e.g., a hex edit of bigip.conf) and replace u-umlaut with 0xfc.

Workaround

Do not manually change utf8 characters in the APM resource descriptions of bigip.conf.

Fix Information

Non-utf8 characters in resource descriptions no longer cause malfunction of Resource Assign Dialogue.
