Comments in bigip.conf

I tried saving comments in the bigip.conf file by prefixing lines with a # sign or with //.  After issuing the "bigpipe save" command, the commented lines are no longer in the file.  Is there any way to make this work, or does the file not allow comments?

Thanks!

Hi Jonathan,

What you're seeing is expected behavior. Comments in any of .conf files will be removed when the config in memory is written to disk. You could open a case with F5 Support requesting they support comment fields on bigip.conf objects. I think there might be an existing request for enhancement that your request could be attached to.

You can include comments in rules. Create a special rule for comments.

rule comments {
#
# add your comments here
#
}
