Take a look at the Sharepoint template, it is implemented in there: https://devcentral.f5.com/wiki/iApp.Microsoft-SharePoint-2013-iApp-Template.ashx

You can look at the implementation section and pull out the ASM piece to include in your own iApp.

If you need additional guidance, we can take it apart together.

Nojan, thanks for pointing me to the sharepoint template. It has a lot of references to ASM, more than what I am comfortable to add into the generic http iApp. Do you know is F5 going to release an official iapp template for generic HTTP application service?

Hi Ken, there is already a generic service for HTTP, that ships with the iApps, depending on your version of BIG-IP, you should find it at the top of the iApp list. As far as adding ASM to that template, that's a great suggestion, I will pass that along. As far as your other question in regards to strict updates, once you turn off strict, you are not "breaking" the iApp, but any changes you make manually, outside of the iApp, may be overwritten by the iApp if you run the template again. Keep that in mind if you turn off strict to add the ASM policy. It all depends on how you would like to manage the application configuration, if you would like to keep it all within the iApp, don't turn off strict. If you would like to just use the iApp for a one-time setup, then it's okay to turn off strict and manage the rest of the config "manually".

You can assign an ASM policy to a VS implemented with an Application Services by changing the properties of de Application Service unchecking "Strict Updates".

Doing this you can make any change to the VS directly.

Will this break the iApp?

Of course, if you disable strict updates and then reconfigure the iapp, all ASM policy will go away and have to be manually created anew.
