Symptoms

When a URL containing a query string is added to an anti-fraud profile, the BIG-IP config load fails: 010719d8:3: Anti-Fraud URL '/url\?query=string' is invalid. Every protected URL should be a valid non-empty relative path specified in lower case in the case insensitive Anti-Fraud profile '/Common/antifraud'. Unexpected Error: Loading configuration process failed.

Impact

After a BIG-IP config save, loading of new bigip.conf fails.

Conditions

Adding a query string to a URL for an anti-fraud profile.

Workaround

Follow this procedure: 1. Remove the escaping characters \ (backslash) for ? (question mark) in the bigip.conf file. 2. Load the configuration.

Fix Information

The issue has been fixed: Now Anti-fraud profile URLs support query strings such as /uri?query=data, and they can be successfully loaded.
