About virtual servers in BIG-IQ Web Application Security

Through the Virtual Servers panel, BIG-IQ Web Application Security displays the virtual servers on each discovered BIG-IP device and enables you to view the properties for these virtual servers.

For each device discovered, the BIG-IQ system creates an extra virtual server to hold all security policies not related to any virtual server in the discovered device.

Displaying virtual server properties

With BIG-IQ Web Application Security, you can easily view virtual server properties.
  1. To display properties for an individual virtual server, hover over the header for that virtual server (in the Virtual Servers panel).
  2. Click the gear icon to expand and display the panel containing virtual server properties. Properties are read-only. The only actions you can take in the expanded panel concern the attached policies.
    Option Description
    Name Name of the virtual server.
    Full Path Path, including partition, to the virtual server.
    IP Address Self IP address of the BIG-IP device.
    Is Inactive Policies Holder Yes/No.
    Device FQDN of the BIG-IP device.
    Attached Policies Remove/Change.

Virtual server properties

Virtual server properties are read-only and displayed for informational purposes only.

Property Description
Name Name of the virtual server.
Full Path Full path, including partition, to the virtual server on the BIG-IP device.
Description Optional description of the virtual server.
IP Address Self IP address of the BIG-IP device.

Attached Policies Remove/Change/Add attached policies.

Changing virtual servers

Use the BIG-IQ Web Application Security Virtual Server expanded panel to add policies to a virtual server or remove policies from the virtual server they are attached to. You can change the virtual server a given policy is attached to.
Note: You can add but not remove or change security policies to an inactive virtual server. You can add security policies (instead of replace them) to an active virtual server only if it does not have a security policy already.
  1. To begin the process, navigate to the Virtual Servers panel.
  2. Hover in the Virtual Servers header and click the gear icon to display the expanded Properties panel.
  3. In the expanded panel to the right of Attached Policies, click Change.
  4. In the Modal dialog box, select the policies you want to add to the current virtual server and click Add.
The selected policies are added to or changed from the current virtual server.

Removing links between virtual servers and policies

You can use BIG-IQ Web Application Security to remove the link between a virtual server and a policy.

  1. To begin the process, navigate to the Virtual Servers panel.
  2. Hover in the Virtual Servers header and click the gear icon to display the expanded Properties panel.
  3. In the expanded Properties panel, click Remove.
The link between the policy and the virtual server is deleted. This means that if the policy is attached to the virtual server on the remote BIG-IP device, the link between them is deleted during the deployment process.
