Bug ID 918493: Attempting to use allowVlans and rejectVlands from an AS3 template

Last Modified: Nov 07, 2022

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IQ Applications(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
7.1.0, 8.0.0,

Fixed In:,

Opened: Jun 17, 2020

Severity: 3-Major


When you try to use allowVlans and rejectVlans from an AS3 template that was created from the BIG-IQ user interface, returns a deployment failure message: "allowVlans: should be array" and deployment fails.


You cannot deploy changes to the VLAN.


1. Create an AS3 template from BIG-IQ. 2. Select Editable for "VLAN list to allow" (below the Service_HTTP for example). 3. Deploy an AS3 Application Service using the template with a known VLAN entered into "VLAN list to allow". 4. Deployment fails with error: "allowVlans: should be array"


To work around this, deploy the VLAN from an API.

Fix Information

This issue is fixed and you can successfully deploy an AS3 template with a VLAN change from the BIG-IQ user interface.
