APM: VPN + Azure AD MFA, what license?



i am new to the F5 universum and i have a question regarding licensing:

When using Remote Access SSL VPN in combination with Azure AD for MFA via SAML, what kind of license is needed in such cases?

I would assume its one CCU per Connection? - what about those access sessions?


Maybe someone could help me out on this,

Thanks in advance :)

  • I'm not an expert in licensing (and I've spent enough time in presales to not want to be one either ;), but as far as I understand it, any normal SAML connections does NOT take up a CCU (either when using APM as SAML IdP or SP). However, if you then set up a VPN tunnel, or have other objects on your webtop that DO use a CCU (even if you're not using those), it still costs a CCU.


    See here for more details:


    Hope this helps, but I'm sure there's some better license experts around here so I'm happy to be corrected. ;)
