APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using a WS-Mediation policy, either in the form of a local
    XML document or a policy document configured on WSRR, the SLM
    policy created on DataPower is in a down state. The error
    indicates "Invalid threshold interval".
    
    This is a result of the maximum interval of 65,535 which is
    enforced on DataPower 7.5.+ when the SLM interval-type is
    moving. When the policy has an interval longer than this
    amount, for example 1 day, the generated SLM policy is invalid.
    
    To address this, there will now be an option to select a fixed
    interval from the policy document, instead of the default
    moving interval. This is done by setting the <wsme:Attribute>.
    
    The 2 new attributes are:
    MessageCountFixed
    ErrorCountFixed
    

Local fix

  • Set your policy interval to be shorter than 65,535 seconds.
    

Problem summary

  • WS-Mediation attributes disallow any ThresholdType but Moving.
    Fixed intervals of any type were not allowed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Extend ws-mediation Attributes to include 2 new values:
    MessageCountFixed and ErrorCountFixed. Values effectively set
    ThreshIntervalType and ThresholdType via one value.
    
    Fix is available in 7.5.0.9, 7.5.1.8, 7.5.2.8 and 7.6.0.0
