Opened: Jun 15, 2020

Severity: 3-Major


The BIG-IQ discover/import process fails when the BIG-IP devices being discovered/imported have configurations with profile or rule names that begin with a number.


BIQ-IQ cannot manage these BIG-IP devices.


A policy rule name starts with a number, for example "8rule". When BIG-IQ sees this, it will fail validation and then fail the discovery/import process.

BIG-IQ can manage BIG-IP devices that have a policy rule name that starts with a number.
