- ForSupporting Objects, your options depend on the component you are restoring.For Web Application SecuritySupporting objects are always included.For Network Security or Local Traffic & NetworkClear theIncludecheck box if you want to restore changes only to the selected objects. It is almost always best to restore changes to the associated objects as well.The objects that you manage using the BIG-IQ depend on associations with other, supporting objects. These object associations form relationship trees that are sometimes quite complex. Generally, when you restore a change to a managed object it is a very good idea to include these supporting objects in the deployment. This diagram illustrates a typical relationship tree for Network Services managed objects. For Local Traffic and Web Application Security, the trees are equally complex and just as vital to include.
