Element Validators

About Element Validators

Validators are used on certain elements to define what user input is allowable. The BIG-IP system always has the final say on what is allowed, but if a validator value is given to the configuration utility, it can present the user with a more useful error message about the location of the error. Validator names are not case-sensitive.


Validator   Accepts
FQDN   Domain name (RFC 1034)
IpOrFqdn   ipv4, ipv6 or domain name (explicitly disallow “*”)
IpAddress   “*”, ipv4 or ipv6
NonNegativeNumber   Integer >=0
Number   Any integer
PortNumber   “*” or int value 0-65535 (inclusive)
