BIG-IQ Applications(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
7.1.0,,,, 7.1.6,, 7.1.7,,, 7.1.8,,,,,, 7.1.9,,,, 8.0.0,

Opened: Apr 16, 2020

Severity: 3-Major


On the device grid, if you try to remove services from a device on which a legacy application service is deployed, you don't get an error message.


There is no way for you to know that the legacy application service deployed to this device is blocking your ability to remove this device.


1. Create a legacy application service using the BIG-IQ application dashboard. 2. Try to remove services from the device on which the application service is deployed


You can either: * Examine the file: /var/log/restjavad.0.log and look for the error message: Device in use by application 'myWebApp'. * Attempt to use the API call to remove the device. The response identifies the issue that blocks the device from being removed.
