iRule for syncing iApp over sync-only device group

Is there a way to sync everything from an iApp EXCEPT the virtual server over a sync-only device group? We are looking to cut down on the amount of time needed to spin up applications since we need to repeat the process in multiple data centers due to there being separate public networks in each.

To state it another way, you want to have different virtual server addresses on each LTM but all the other details the same, and synchronise the common elements. Is that right?

I think you're out of luck with an iApp, but it should be possible if you configure the objects with tmsh, although I haven't tried this. Create a subdirectory of the sync group's folder and disable device group inheritance. For example, if your /Common is your sync group, put all your common elements here:

sys folder /Common {
    device-group /Common/config-sync-group
}

and create your local-only config in this path:

sys folder /Common/local {
    inherited-devicegroup false
}

I am keen to know how you go with this

If this works, then there is no reason you can't create your own iApp to do it for you
