Unable to address the working behind the advanced parameter feature

Hi,

 

I'm new at f5 solution and I am currently looking over the BIG-IP AWAF series where I am bumped into Demo 13. The video enables - Collapse many common parameters into one wildcard parameter after _ option in a global parameter level.

 

 

As per my understanding, the parameters for an instance- username, user & user1 in a global parameter level will be considered as a common parameter and declare them as a wildcard parameter.

 

So suppose the enabled option: Collapse many common parameters into one wildcard parameter after 10 occurrences.

 

- Should each parameter needs to occur 10 times in a global parameter level or that common parameter occurrence sums up the value (10 occurrences) like username-5 times, user-3 times, and user1-2 times to trigger the feature.

  • if you have user, user1 and username and the occurrence set to 10 the parameters will never be collapsed into a wildcard user*. You need to have have user1, user2, user3, user4, user5, user6, user7, user8, user9, userwhatever if the occurrence setting equals 10.
