How to Suppress Hybrid BIG-IP Signaling When Doing Maintenance / Upgrades / Testing


  • If BIG-IP on-prem is under maintenance / upgrade / testing, a Hybrid BIG-IP can be placed into a Suppressed state, which prevents signals from that BIG-IP from creating tickets for the F5 Silverline SOC.  
  • This capability is reserved for Customer Admins and F5 SOC Analysts.

How Long is the Hybrid BIG-IP Supressed?

  • Duration of Suppressions is a configurable option: from 1 hour up to a maximum of 24 hours
  • If a device needs to be suppressed for longer than 24 hours: the BIG-IP can be deleted from the Silverline portal and can then be re-registered at the appropriate time by re-running the Hybrid Connector iApp.
