Opened: Apr 07, 2020
Severity: 4-Minor


iControl REST async endpoint /mgmt/tm/task/util/ihealth behaving inconsistently: -- A call to VALIDATE the async task is rejected with the error message: 'Operation is not allowed on component /util/ihealth.' -- The task can be started by calling a different endpoint (e.g., /mgmt/tm/task/cli/script). In this case, the task completes immediately, however, a qkview generating iHealth util is still running. At the end, the qkview is generated.


Patch for iControl REST endpoint is not successful. Patch operation is accepted by /mgmt/tm/task/cli/script/ but rejected by /mgmt/tm/task/util/ihealth.


-- Use iControl REST to create an async task for creating qkview using 'ihealth' with -n option (just generate file, do not upload to iHealth). -- Try starting the async task by changing the status to VALIDATING.
