  • Hi neeeewbie,

    when you disable Javascript in the browser, the page says "Please enable JavaScript to view the page content."
    Do I understand that correct?

    In that case I would enable JS in the browser. Does the message change, if you access the page with or without ASM enabled?

      thank you

  • I would try to verify in first place, whether this message is sent by the BIG-IP at all. I would be highly surprised.
    My approach to analyse this issue would be to access the application:
    a) direct, bypassing the BIG-IP
    b) via BIG-IP without ANY ASM features assigned to the VS
    c) via BIG-IP with ASM features enabled
    Use Developer Tools in Browser for a, b and c. Compare. Look for error messages, 404, etc.
    Use tcpdump on F5 for b and c. Use the p flag to capture client- and server-side. Compare.

    My first guess would be, that maybe something is in the application that is preventing the JavaScript from beeing executed properly when the application is accessed via a reverse proxy.
