Problem this snippet solves:

Sometimes it is necessary to add a parameter into multiple policy or all policies or to delete a parameter from multiple policies. If you have hundreds of asm polices and you try to do it via GUI, It takes long time and It is boring. For example, you have a new vulnerability scanner and you want to add all policies, or your contract with a security analysis company and you want to delete their IP address from all asm policies. If you have lots of policy, this gets big issue.

How to use this snippet:

I wrote a sample bash script, It adds an IP into the trusted IP list of multiple asm policy or deletes an IP from the trusted IP list of all asm policies.

Firstly, you must choose which asm polices you want to change. Use this command to get list of the asm policies and write it into a file(asmPolicies.txt😞

curl -k -u <admin>:<password> -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X GET https://<F5 IP Address>/mgmt/tm/asm/policies?$select=id,name,fullPath | jq -r '.items[] | "\(.id) \(.name) \(.fullPath)"' > asmPolicies.txt

This is the sample content of an asmPolicies.txt

[root@f5 asmPolicies]# cat asmPolicies.txt 
x3yyOJTe3CvcWJDMqpnrgQ First /Common/First

sPR5LNQrrf29I1xZ8MtcRA SecPol-Lab16.4_2 /Common/SecPol-Lab16.4_2

Secondly, check the asmPolicies.txt, and erase the lines which policies you dont want to change

Last, copy updateAsmPolicies.sh(attached) in a directory, then run updateAsmPolicies.sh with an appropriate command and parameter

Usage: updateAsmPolicies.sh command parameter Commands: -a, -add add an IP address into the trusted IP list -d, -delete delete an IP address from the trusted IP list -c, -change <orgIP-newIP> delete the orgIP from the trusted IP list, then add the newIP into the trusted IP list

updateAsmPolicies.sh -a 1.1.1.1 -> adds 1.1.1.1 into the trusted IP list

updateAsmPolicies.sh -d 1.1.1.1 -> delete 1.1.1.1 from the trusted IP list

that is it. This is just a sample.
