On BIG-IP i5800 with APM and AVR provisioned, deploying a REST API security (Open API Spec) configuration with 200+ rate-limiting overrides or 200+ whitelist/blacklist entries, may result in an error message: The requested API Protection Profile (/Common/API_Protection_0.app/API_Protection_0) already exists in partition Common
Restjavad will restart, and the deployment will fail so the configuration cannot be deployed.
On i5800, configure API Protection in AGC with greater than 200 rate limiting overrides and whitelist/blacklists. With 200 rate limiting overrides, and no whitelist/blacklists, the configuration was able to deploy on i5800.
As a workaround, use the GUI when adding a large number of rate limiting overrides or whitelist/blacklist entries.
