Auto removal of IP addresses from F5 data group.


We have been using a F5 datagroup in our org for IP blacklisting approach. So an IP added to this data group will be rejected traffic by our F5. Now this datagroup has IP addresses added more than 4 years ago, hence its a long list of IPs. We are looking into automating this IP blacklist approach. I would like to know if there are any APIs in F5 that can

  1. blacklist an IP along with a timestamp (or at least a date)
  2. remove multiple IPs that match a given time frame (from start date to an end date)
  3. Add a removal timer while adding the IP to the blacklist data group.
