Opened: Jan 15, 2021
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

-- The guishell shows the app_id as the default application for the folder /Common/example_app.app and not what was specified, which was 'none'. -- If the record has an app_id configured, the output of tmsh list data-group should list the app-service.

Impact

-- Unable to properly manage the lifecycle of data-group records created via an iApp. -- Unable to update data-group records at all via iControl REST, because the entire set of records must be managed altogether, and strict-updates prevents the existing records from being modified. -- Inconsistent behavior across a save-and-load operation. (The app-service is not serialized to the configuration, so after save and load, the app-service is dropped from the data-group records.)

Conditions

Create an application service using tmsh.

Workaround

After every iApp template deploy/update, run the following command: tmsh save sys config && tmsh load sys config

Fix Information

None
