Managing DataGroups from BIG-IQ

A customer today asked me about managing DataGroups from within BIG-IQ as they want to start using it for all configuration work. However they were unable to find where DataGroups could be managed from within BIG-IQ. I've also had a look and haven't been able to find anything relating to this on the GUI or by searching for documentation.

 

Any clues gratefully received.

I've just found out that Data-Groups are currently not supported on Big-IQ at the moment.

 

Customer is disappointed.

 

I am surprised it isn't supported as so many customers I work at use DataGroups

Is this still the case?

F5: is there a feature request and how do we make sure this is being heard by development.

I agree with you. Being able to upload a new list of blocked ip addresses to all F5 devices from the Big-IQ seems like a major thing and a feature that F5 needs to implement.

I have a workaround for BIG-IQ or using Ansible. You can check it:
