Symptoms

Prior to configuring an AWS WAF (AWAF) PAYG cloud instance, you may see errors related to an unlicensed LTM module. This occurs because the default provisioning for all instances is LTM nominal. However, the license associated with an AWAF PAYG cloud instance does not enable the LTM feature. As a result, the default provisioning for an unconfigured AWAF PAYG cloud instance will be incompatible with the PAYG license.

Impact

Licensing error messages may be observed before the AWAF cloud instance is configured/provisioned. The functionality works as expected, however, so you can ignore these messages.

Conditions

-- This issue relates only to AWAF PAYG cloud instances. -- Not using the onboarding/templates to configure/provision the instance prior to use.

Workaround

The recommended workflow for all cloud instances is to use onboarding/templates to configure/provision the instance prior to use. If this workflow is followed, any provisioning errors associated with the default provisioning are cleared prior to usage.

Fix Information

None
