- Classify HTTPS traffic using flavors—The idea is to build an infrastructure that is similar to HTTP flavor, to classify the HTTPS traffic dynamically. Flavors can be added by using the domain name seen in the client Hello and Certificate packet.
- SCE 10000 platform supports 2 million flavor URL Support and SCE 8000 platform continue to support 500 flavor URL Support.
- Flexible redirection for end of the day, end of the week, end of the month.
Common SCABB console is going to be used for SCE 8000, SCE10000 and vSCE platform releases.
The SCABB console reaction for PQB files are listed below:
- SCE 8000 platform level service tree will be maintained if we open 4.1.x or any earlier release PQB file in 5.1.0 SCABB console.
- SCE10000 platform level service tree will be maintained if we open 5.0.0 release PQB file in 5.1.0 SCABB console.
- SCE10000 platform level service tree will be maintained if we create new policy in 5.1.0 SCABB console.
Resolved Caveats, Release 5.1.0
This section describes the resolved caveats in Cisco SCA BB Release 5.1.0.
If you import a CSV file with flavors, HTTPS protocols included in the CSV file are successfully applied to Cisco SCE, but the HTTPS flows are classified as HTTP.
The Cisco Service Control Subscriber Manager displays the redirect statistics for the Cisco SCE devices even after removing RDR-Formatter entry from one Cisco SCE device.
Open Caveats, Release 5.1.0
This section describes the open caveats in Cisco SCA BB Release 5.1.0.
Cisco SCE does not block the FTP traffic, though it is set to block in a specific package.
There is no workaround.
1. Create a new quota profile with Subscriber SCE API as the Type,
2. Attach all services to a quota bucket profile in Cisco SCA BB,
3. Create a new service on classification tab,
4. Save the configuration as.pqb and open the.pqb file,
you can find that the new service does not get reflected to add into a bucket profile.
There is no workaround.
While opening 4.2.0, older PQB SCABB console is throwing a warning message.
There is no workaround (Warning can be ignored as there is no impact).
VoIP family filter is missing while upgrading from release 3.8.5. VoIP reports will not be generated.
Open the PQB in 3.8.5 SCABB and move the Qik protocol from Video protocol filter to VoIP protocol filter and save the configurations as.pqb file. Now open the saved PQB file in 4.1.0 SCABB, the VoIP protocol filter should be visible.
