Application Services 3 Extension (AS3) is a flexible, low-overhead mechanism for managing application-specific configurations on a BIG-IP system. AS3 uses a declarative model, meaning you provide a JSON declaration rather than a set of imperative commands.
For the documentation on AS3, including download, installation, and usage instructions, see the AS3 User and Reference guides at http://clouddocs.f5.com/products/extensions/f5-appsvcs-extension/latest/.
