Symptoms

Conditions

Modifying API Protection access policy from Access :: Overview :: Event Logs :: Settings.

Workaround

Navigate to the API Protection area and modify any part of the API Protection profile. This causes it to re-deploy, at which time the system clears the 'Apply Access Policy' prompt.
