Import SSL Orchestrator configuration into BIG-IQ

Before importing an SSL Orchestrator (SSLO) configuration from a BIG-IP device to manage SSLO configurations on BIG-IQ, you must first discover the BIG-IP service.
To begin managing BIG-IP SSLO configurations from BIG-IQ, you must discover the SSLO service and import its configuration.You may re-discover services at any time, but importing the service is a one-time process. Once you begin managing SSLO configurations from BIG-IQ, do not make changes to these configurations locally on the BIG-IP device, as doing so results in inconsistent configurations.
  1. On BIG-IQ, at the top, click
    Devices
    .
  2. On the left, click
    BIG-IP DEVICES
    .
    The screen displays a list of managed devices for this BIG-IQ Centralized Management system.
  3. Under Device Name, select the cluster member containing the SSLO configuration you want to import.
  4. Select
    SERVICES
    .
  5. To import an SSLO device configuration into BIG-IQ, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and select
    Import
    .
    Unlike other services that can be managed from BIG-IQ, SSLO employs a one-time import process. Once you import an SSLO configuration from a BIG-IP device, any configuration changes made locally on the BIG-IP SSLO cannot be re-imported to BIG-IQ and will result in inconsistent configurations between the BIG-IP device and BIG-IQ.
    Once you select
    Import
    , the system opens a popup screen.
  6. From
    Location
    , select a unique name to identify a device or group of devices.
    • If the imported SSLO service has not been configured, all other required fields are set to their defaults, which you may edit.
    • If the imported service has been configured on the BIG-IP device, the popup screen displays the existing settings assigned by the user on the BIG-IP device, which you may also edit during the import stage.
Once you have imported SSLO configurations from the BIG-IP device into BIG-IQ, you are ready to centrally manage all configurations for SSLO on BIG-IQ, and mass-deploy the configurations.
