Severity: 3-Major


BIG-IQ fails to push transform rules if the post data is too large for webd on the DCD and returns an error similar to: "Failed to push alert rules to device java.net.ProtocolException: status:413, body:<html...>"


The DCD devices do not apply transform rules. Due to this issue, transform rules are not being synced to the DCDs.


The issue occurs when overall data of the transform rules exceed 16MB.


To work around this issue, edit /etc/webd/webd.conf to set client_max_body_size 128M and restart webd by running the 'bigstart restart webd' command.
