Problem this snippet solves:

This is a perl script showing an example of how to deploy an iApp application service using iControl.

Code :

#!/usr/bin/perl

# This is an example of how to deploy an iApp service using the f5.http
# template. It'll almost certainly require some customization before it's ready
# to be more than an example.

use warnings;
use strict;

use SOAP::Lite;
use iControlTypeCast;

# customize these lines to use your BIG-IP and a working account
my $sHost = "bwb-local";
my $sUID = "admin";
my $sPWD = "admin";

# These variables are specific to the f5.http template as it was written for
# BIG-IP v11.1 and for a specific configuration. They need customized for
# however it is that _you_ want to provision the application service that
# results from this script. Entries to this array represent answers to the
# questions that an iApp template asks a user (that are not tables, but see
# below for those).
