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.


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