Product description

Cloud administrators can use iWorkflow to supply tenants with on-demand access to resources such as networks, servers, storage, applications, and services. These cloud resources can be located on BIG-IP devices in a private local network, a public third-party cloud service, or a combination of both.

Tenants have restricted and dedicated access to resources based on their unique tenant role and user account. Cloud space can be expanded, retracted, and reallocated to tenants as needed, providing flexible resource balancing.

Screen resolution requirement

To properly display, the iWorkflow system requires that your screen resolution is set to 1280x1024 or higher.

Browser support

This release supports the following browsers and versions:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer version 11 and later.
  • Mozilla Firefox version 29.x and later.
  • Google Chrome version 34.x and later.

You will see this error message when you try to deploy a large number of iApps at once on iWorkflow (1800 iApps were used as the test). iApps that display this error message are not deployed to BIG-IPs.

Issue a PUT using the same payload that was used to deploy the iApp.
608687 iWorkflow Evicting a peer from a cluster and adding it back right away doesn't work. iWorkflow HA is impacted. Wait a while (about 30 min) to add the evicted peer back to the cluster.
613096 iWorkflow The user cannot on-board or configure a discovered device with tagged VLANs in the Devices, Initial Configuration page. During on-boarding of the BIG-IP device Minimal 1. On-board the device with no network specified.

2. At the top of the screen, select BIG-IP Connectivity.

3. Create the tagged VLANs and Self-IP addresses using the corresponding panels.
618585 iWorkflow When you create a vCMP guest using the vCMP connector, if vCMP guest creation fails, the corresponding node/device shows up in ERROR state. The REMOVE in UI does not remove the node in ERROR state. You cannot remove a node/device that is in an ERROR state. Clicking the REMOVE button in the UI for the device/node that is in ERROR state does not remove the device/node. The node in ERROR state can be deleted using an API call.

Perform DELETE on https://<iWorkflow-IP>/mgmt/cm/cloud/connectors/vcmp/<connectorId>/nodes/<nodeId/>

618901 iWorkflow Resetting a vCMP guest results in a partial reset. That is, the self-IP address is removed, but the Hostname and VLAN are left intact. After the reset, if the user attempts to use the initial configuration option. the initial configuration is not guaranteed and will most likely fail. If the Reset and Reconfigure option is applied to a vCMP guest, it gets into a partially reset state. Reset and Reconfigure is not recommended and not supported for vCMP guests.
619705 iWorkflow If you try to create a catalog using an imported custom created iApp template that includes the "row" element, the import succeeds, but the row contents are not displayed in the catalog. When this happens, a drop down box should let us select that the IP address for the pool member is not populated. The iApp works without error from the BIG-IP GUI.
