Partition description misbehaviour API vs GUI

Hello,

we noticed strange environment with partition description on v14.1.4.

 

I create partition with command

POST https://10.10.10.10/mgmt/tm/auth/partition/ {"name": "partitiondescr", "description": "neco"}

 

I get expected response:

{     "kind": "tm:auth:partition:partitionstate",     "name": "partitiondescr",     "fullPath": "partitiondescr",     "generation": 3531,     "selfLink": "https://localhost/mgmt/tm/auth/partition/partitiondescr?ver=14.1.4",     "defaultRouteDomain": 0,     "description": "neco" }

 

BUT I cannot see the description in GUI:

Seems like Description in GUI is defined somewhere else than "description" in API JSON structure.

Any change through API is not visible in GUI and vice versa.

 

Do you know where I could find API key-value pair for partition description?

 

Thank you,

Zdenek

Hi Zdenek,

 

I tested it on v15.1.3.1

I see the partition's description on the CLI and bigip_base.conf, but not on the GUI.

Hi, ok so it corresponds to my findings.

Question is then, where GUI takes the "Description" from?

When I look through via web browser, it is "description".

https://<mgmt-ip>/mgmt/tm/auth/partition/partitiontest?ver=15.1.3.1   {"kind":"tm:auth:partition:partitionstate","name":"partitiontest","fullPath":"partitiontest","generation":350,"selfLink":"https://localhost/mgmt/tm/auth/partition/partitiontest?ver=15.1.3.1","defaultRouteDomain":0,"description":"descriptiontest"}

It seems a bug.
