Pushing data groups via EM

When creating a changeset, I can use another device as a template for all sorts of configuration options. However, I don't see a way to do this with data groups.



It appears that I could just choose the "Text" option when creating a data group and manually put in the data, however I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something obvious (and more convenient).




So, is there any way to take all the data groups from one device and synchronize that across certain devices?

  • Are your data groups string-type? Or something else?

    I'd expect to be able to just push the class config but haven't tried

    class class_name {
  • Are you talking about the class config, which I'd pull out of the bigip.conf?



    I could see doing that, but I realize my next problem is the "Class Header" required for Templates or Changesets. The text usually includes something like "F5[Local Traffic / Node]", but to push my data groups, I don't know what header to put in my text.




    Any thoughts?
  • Yep...I was thinking ripping it out of bigip.conf. I've done templates for changing auth settings and the text was the same. I'll look into whether I can find the correct header.
