When you upgrade the BIG-IQ system, the /var/config/rest/config/restjavad.properties.json file previously existing on the BIG-IQ is carried forward in the UCS archive and is preserved following the upgrade. The restjavad.properties.json file in the ISO is not deployed to the BIG-IQ. The intended use of the restjavad.properties.json file was solely for users to optionally set customized values that overwrite some of the default application properties values. During some of the past releases prior to 8.0, some vendor (F5)-defined default property values were accidentally included in the restjavad.properties.json file in the ISO file. Any new property value that was added to the restjavad.properties.json file in a particular version will not exist on the BIG-IQ following an upgrade to that version.
Any new property value that was added to the restjavad.properties.json file in a particular version will not exist on the BIG-IQ following an upgrade to that version. Note: This only affects upgrades, not new installs. The restjavad.properties.json file on a newly installed BIG-IQ will have the same content as the file in the ISO.
Upgrade the BIG-IQ from a version begining with 5.1 to a version up to and including 22.214.171.124.
Following an upgrade: 1. Retrieve the restjavad.properties.json file from the ISO. 2. Apply (add or replace) to it any custom settings you previously configured. 3. Replace that file as the /var/config/rest/config/restjavad.properties.json file on the BIG-IQ. See K02972920: The restjavad.properties.json file is not updated with a newer version after upgrading the BIG-IQ system: https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K02972920.
This was fixed in BIG-IQ 8.0.0. The restjavad.properties.json file in the ISO no longer contains any default application properties values. On upgrade to version 8.0.0 or newer, the BIG-IQ will just work correctly, using the property values in the file prior to the upgrade. F5 recommends to replace the restjavad.properties.json file from the earlier BIG-IQ version with the new, clean file from the ISO, and only add to the file the property values you want to be different from the defaults.

The restjavad.properties.json file in the ISO no longer contains any default application properties values.
