Partition description misbehaviour API vs GUI


we noticed strange environment with partition description on v14.1.4.

I create partition with command

{"name": "partitiondescr", "description": "neco"}

I get expected response:

    "kind": "tm:auth:partition:partitionstate",
    "name": "partitiondescr",
    "fullPath": "partitiondescr",
    "generation": 3531,
    "selfLink": "https://localhost/mgmt/tm/auth/partition/partitiondescr?ver=14.1.4",
    "defaultRouteDomain": 0,
    "description": "neco"

BUT I cannot see the description in GUI:

Seems like Description in GUI is defined somewhere else than "description" in API JSON structure.

Any change through API is not visible in GUI and vice versa.

Do you know where I could find API key-value pair for partition description?

Thank you,

  • Hi Zdenek,


    I tested it on v15.1.3.1

    I see the partition's description on the CLI and bigip_base.conf, but not on the GUI.

  • Hi, ok so it corresponds to my findings.

    Question is then, where GUI takes the "Description" from?

  • When I look through via web browser, it is "description".


    It seems a bug.
