Overview: Access Policies for F5 Access
About access policy branches for F5 Access
You can configure separate access policy branches for F5 Access.
F5 Access does not support client-side checks; however, you can configure an access policy that provides network access for macOS clients by using any of these methods:
- Create an access policy usingClient-Side Capability. This provides a branch for clients that do not support client-side checks. Assign authentication and a network access resource to this branch.
- Use an existing access policy with client-side checks. The macOS client will fail to the fallback branch of the first client-side check, if the logon mode is native. If the logon mode is Web Logon, user interaction is required to proceed with the fallback branch. Assign authentication and a network access resource to the fallback branch.
- Add aClient OSAccess Policy item, and assign authentication and resources to themacOSbranch.
F5 Access for macOS is detected with the following access policy items:
