About virtual servers in the policy editor

BIG-IQ® Web Application Security displays virtual servers in the policy editor for each discovered BIG-IP® device, and enables you to view the properties for these virtual servers and manage the policies attached to them.

For each device discovered, the BIG-IQ system creates an extra virtual server to hold all security policies not related to any virtual server in the discovered device.
