Comments in bigip.conf

I tried saving comments in the bigip.conf file by prefixing lines with a sign or with //. After issuing the "bigpipe save" command, the commented lines are no longer in the file. Is there any way to make this work, or does the file not allow comments?

  • Hi Jonathan,



    What you're seeing is expected behavior. Comments in any of .conf files will be removed when the config in memory is written to disk. You could open a case with F5 Support requesting they support comment fields on bigip.conf objects. I think there might be an existing request for enhancement that your request could be attached to.

    You can include comments in rules. Create a special rule for comments.
