All F5 customers who buy AWAF with advanced bot protection service that detect bots get to use Appdome to integrate the F5 Anti-Bot mobile SDK into their mobile apps. The implementation of the F5 Anti-Bot SDK on Appdome is included in their F5 bot protection service contract.
This knowledge base article goes into detail on what is included with this service offering.
For more information on how to add the SDK to any Android and iOS app, please refer to the following KB articles
Getting Your Appdome Production License for the F5 Anti-Bot SDK Integration
If you are an F5 customer, you should create your Appdome account after you have signed an AWAF with bot protection service contract with F5. If you already created an account as part of your trial of Anti-Bot, you should ask you Appdome service delivery manager to reset your account to a Complete account.
Once you log in to your account, you should go to the Mobile Threat tab where you will see the following where you can enter your provided promo:
In that box, you should enter the promo code that F5 gave you after signing your AWAF with bot protection service contract. If you did not get a promo code, contact your F5 account manager to request that promo code. Without this promo code, you cannot get the right Appdome production license.
After you enter the promo code your Complete account will be upgraded to a Partner Ideal account. Before you can start using your Partner Ideal account, you first have to agree to the F5 Terms and Conditions.
The Partner Ideal Account Production License
With a Partner Ideal account, F5 customers can add the standard implementation of the F5 Anti-Bot SDK to any mobile app that needs to connect to a web server that has bot protection enabled.
In addition to the standard implementation of the Anti-Bot SDK, F5 customers also get Appdome’s ONEShield app hardening solution. This adds anti-debugging, anti-tampering, anti-reversing and other app hardening features to the app. For an overview of ONEShield and the features below, please refer to this KB article.
