For BIG-IP v13 please go to the f5-asm-policy-template-v13 on Github.

Applies to version 11.5, 11.6, 12.0, & 12.1.

This templates are built to simplify configuration process of

  • MS Sharepoint (Supports SharePoint 2010 through 2016)
  • MS Exchange Server (Supports All Exchange components in one policy)
  • Wordpress
  • Joomla
  • Drupal
  • SAP NetWeaver Portal NEW
  • Simplified Rapid Deployment NEW

The goal is to apply the policies, run it in transparent mode for some time, tune for possible false positives and move to blocking mode.

Very Important: You have to add manually any url's that works with AJAX or XML and apply the appropriate content profiles

New: Created specific versions support for: 11.5, 11.6, 12.0, 12.1

Note: if the workflow or too strict/loose blocking mask doesn't fit your needs, you can still apply custom blocking mask, and policy building process while having the benefits predefined and tuned:

Parameters File Types Technology Specific Signatures Recommended Blocking Mask( Not Mandatory)

Important in case the policy is not working properly please check the latest version - maybe the problem is already fixed.
