This section has a summary of FAST’s user interface and how to manage applications using loaded templates.
The Templates tab shows a list of installed template packages and the templates in each, and which applications are deployed using them.
FAST comes pre-installed with base template sets that satisfy common use cases. Included are templates to deploy virtual servers for basic HTTP and HTTPS applications, as well as simple TCP and UDP applications.
FAST can be extended beyond the included templates, new custom templates can be installed for any AS3 use case. Template sets are packaged into a single file that can be loaded into the system via the REST API (and will be available for install using the UI in an upcoming release).
Template sets may be provided by F5, sourced from the community, or may be custom written. For information on authoring template sets, understanding the template set format, and uploading templates, see Creating New Templates.
The deploy log is a summary of AS3’s async task results, newer jobs are nearer to the top. The output includes the Task ID, the Tenant (BIG-IP partition), and the result.
The API tab contains documentation for the F5 Application Services API and SDK. Use the index in the left pane to find specific information.
