BIG-IQ Web Application Security enables enterprise-wide management and configuration of multiple BIG-IP devices from a central management platform. You can centrally manage BIG-IP devices and security policies, and import security policies from files on those devices. The following feature is new to release 4.3.0.
|440639||The warning/rediscover icon sometimes persisted after a successful discovery.
Consider a BIG-IP policy that was previously discovered and imported into a BIG-IQ system. If you then edit the BIG-IP policy from the BIG-IP interface and go to the BIG-IQ interface and rediscover that policy, there is no need to discover the policy again. The policy is synchronized on both the BIG-IP and BIG-IQ systems. The issue is that the warning icon, indicating that the policy is out of sync, persists.
|450165||The GUI will show a modal text box if the device is rebooted/restarted while a discovery or remove task is running.||Connect to the device CLI using SSH and execute the following commands:
$ curl -X DELETE http://localhost:8100/cm/asm/tasks/declare-mgmt- authority
$ curl -X DELETE http://localhost:8100/cm/asm/tasks/remove-mgmt- authority.
