Severity: 4-Minor


The 'Use case sensitive string comparison' setting in Policy options does not have any effect on policy matching when used in combination with a datagroup.


Datagroup matching cannot be toggled using the case sensitivity matching.


Policy's datagroup and case sensitivity options are used together.


Add matched strings directly into the traffic policy rule condition to perform case insensitive matching. Note: Datagroup matching using case insensitivity is not supported.

Fix Information

The GUI is changed to reflect that case sensitivity is not supported with datagroups. A warning is also issued in /var/log/ltm if such a configuration is still selected.
