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 iOS clients by using any of these methods:
  • Create an access policy using Client-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 iOS client will fail to the fallback branch of the first client-side check. Assign authentication and a network access resource to this branch.
  • Add a Client OS Access Policy item, and assign authentication and resources to the iOS branch.

F5 Access for iOS is detected with the following access policy items:

Example of basic access policy that supports F5 Access

You can configure an access policy branch to direct iOS device users to F5 Access, and direct non-F5 Access device users to a fallback branch.

This example displays a simple access policy.
