Affected Product(s):

Known Affected Versions:
14.1.2,,,,,,,,, 14.1.3,, 15.0.0, 15.0.1,,,,, 15.1.0,,,,,, 15.1.1, 15.1.2,, 16.0.0,, 16.0.1

Fixed In:
16.1.0,, 15.1.3, 14.1.4

Opened: Jun 28, 2020

Severity: 3-Major


When deleting (via tmsh) bot-related ordered list items like bot white-lists, bot-microservices, and bot-microservices URLs, an error occurs when adding and saving new items via GUI: Bot defense profile <profile full name> error: match-order should be unique.


The system reports an error, and the bot configuration cannot be saved via GUI. However, dragging between items (and then dragging back) overcomes this error.


1.Create three items with consecutive match-orders values via tmsh, for example: three bot allow list items, the first with match-order 1, the second with match-order 2, and the third with match-order 3. 2. Delete item with the value: match-order 2 (in tmsh), and save. 3. Switch to the GUI, add new allow list item, and save.


Drag between two items, and then drag back.

Fix Information

Deletion of bot-related ordered items via tmsh no longer causes errors when adding new items via GUI.
