BIG-IP compatibility with BIG-IQ

K34133507: BIG-IQ Centralized Management compatibility matrix provides a summary of version compatibility for specific features between the BIG-IQ system and BIG-IP releases.

End of support for Service Catalog Templates

BIG-IQ 8.0.0 is the last BIG-IQ version that includes support for Service Catalog Templates. For compatibility with future versions, use AS3 templates to create and deploy application services in version 8.0.0.
If you are currently using service catalog templates, refer to this article.

Browser support

BIG-IQ version 8.0.0 supports the latest version of browsers at the time of each BIG-IQ release.
  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge
Since browsers are always releasing new versions and fixes (some security related) F5 makes all necessary efforts to support future releases of these browsers with previously-released versions of BIG-IQ. If a newer browser version has compatibility issues with your BIG-IQ user interface:
  1. Switch to the browser version in the tested list.
  2. Call Tech support and open a ticket documenting the exact versions and compatibility problems observed.
Known Issues:
ID Number 722458: Chrome 67 is unsupported with BIG-IQ. Chrome 67 will crash if you use it to try to view or modify an Application Services configuration (such as adding a pool or virtual server) or view or modify an Access Policy configuration. To work around this issue, use a supported browser/version.

Screen resolution requirements

To properly display, the BIG-IQ requires that your screen resolution is set to 1280x1024 or higher.
If you’re a Windows user, do not increase (zoom) the screen size more than 100%, because it can limit what you can view on the screen.
