Last Modified: Oct 06, 2020

Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP ASM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
14.1.2

Fixed In:
15.0.0, 14.1.2.7

Opened: Feb 24, 2019
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When using the 'Copy policy' feature, if you select another application language, it copies the actual policy without taking account of the modification on GUI, and it remains UTF-8 if it originally was UTF-8.

Impact

Newly copied policy carries the application language setting that was active before the change, so the copy does not match the original.

Conditions

1. Go to Security :: Application Security : Security Policies : Policies List. 2. Select an ASM Policy. 3. Click 'Copy policy'. 4. Modify application language to anything else. 5. Click Save.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

In this release, if the encoding is different from the source policy encoding, copy now handles the operation so that the resulting policy has the correct application language.
