F5 rSeries API Workflows

There are two main points of management within F5 rSeries appliances: the F5OS-A platform layer and the individual tenants. Both support their own CLI, webUI, and API access.

At the F5OS-A platform layer level, initial configuration consists of defining static management IP addresses, routing, and other system parameters like DNS and NTP. Licensing is also configured at the F5OS-A platform layer level and is similar to iSeries in that it is applied at the appliance level and inherited by all tenants.

For more information about configuring your system, see F5 rSeries Systems: Getting Started and F5 rSeries Systems: Administration and Configuration at the F5OS-A Knowledge Center.

You can use a RESTful API client like Postman to configure the F5 rSeries platform.

These workflows assume that the initial out-of-band management configuration has been completed.
