Creating an address space for Office 365

Create an address space to provide a range of IPv4 and IPv6 subnets, and DNS names using Office 365's auto-discovery URL.
  1. On the Main tab, select
    Access
    Connectivity / VPN
    Network Access (VPN)
    Address Spaces
    .
    The Address Spaces list appears.
  2. Click
    Create
    .
  3. In the
    Name
    field, type a unique name for the address space.
  4. In the
    Description
    field, specify a description of the address space.
  5. Select
    Office 365
    in the
    Type
    list.
  6. In the
    Discovery URL
    field, type the Office 365's external dynamic
    .json
    file that lists URLs for auto-discovery endpoints. The default URL is
    https://endpoints.office.com/endpoints/worldwide?clientrequestid=b10c5ed1-bad1-445f-b386-b919946339a7
    .
    Microsoft recommends generating a unique GUID for each machine that calls the web service. For more information, refer to the
    Office 365 IP Address and URL web service
    page on the Microsoft Docs website.
  7. In the
    Trusted Certificate Authorities
    list, select the trusted CA bundle to establish a trust in the discovery URL for Office 365.
    For additional security, F5 recommends creating a new CA trust certificate to establish trust in Office 365 endpoints instead of using the default CA bundle.
  8. Specify the response size limit from the provider endpoints in the
    Max Response Size
    field. The default is 128 KB.
  9. In the
    Frequency
    list, select the frequency for the discovery run to be performed. The system downloads the endpoint information from the discovery URL and updates the address space. If using the
    Custom
    option, the maximum frequency is 1576800 minutes (3 years).
  10. Click
    Finished
    .
The address space displays in the Address Space list. The
IPv4 Address Space
,
IPv6 Address Space
, and
DNS Address Space
fields are displayed after the creation of address space and are auto-filled by the endpoints from the Discovery URL list.
