This collection focuses on managing F5 BIG-IP Next instances via BIG-IG Next Central Manager declarative API.

Examples include actions such as saving config, backing up config.

BIG-IP Next uses a combination of BIG-IP Next Central Manager and BIG-IP Next instances to implement application delivery and security. The BIG-IP Next Central Manager manages the BIG-IP Next instances, assuming responsibility for all administrative and management tasks. The BIG-IP Next instances, responsible for data processing, provide robust automation capabilities, scalability, and ease-of-use for organizations running applications on-premise, in the cloud, or out at the edge.
