F5 schema


The k8s-bigip-ctlr project has a built in bigip-virtual-server schema. All versions of the BIG-IP Controller for Kubernetes are backwards-compatible, but using an older version’s schema may limit Controller functionality.

Be sure to use the most recent schema version that corresponds to your Controller version to ensure access to the full feature set.
