Severity: 3-Major


If the ASM http-methods are missing from the MCP configuration, importing an XML ASM policy creates a policy that has no allowed methods and will block all traffic.


All traffic is blocked for the policy.


-- BIG-IP system configuration is loaded without the required asm_base.conf. -- An XML ASM policy is loaded.


Recreate the required methods (GET, POST, etc.) in the policy.

Fix Information

Lack of defined ASM http-methods in MCP no longer affects policy loading.
