The Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service datapath is the engine that processes your application traffic and applies your security configuration. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service often releases new datapath versions with bug fixes, improvements, and new features.
By default, Barracuda Networks will administer your datapath and you will receive notice before your WAF-as-a-Service account is automatically upgraded to a newer datapath version. If you wish, you can control when your applications are upgraded to a new datapath version.
If you decide to manage the datapath yourself, you will receive 90 days notice before a version reaches End of Life (EoL).
To choose the datapath version for your applications, follow these steps:
- Log into https://waas.barracudanetworks.com
- Navigate to Resources > Managing the datapath.
- Set Let Barracuda manage my datapath version to Off.
- Select the desired datapath version in the dropdown list and click Save.
It can take up to 30 minutes for the selected datapath version to be fully applied to all the endpoint locations used by the applications in your account.
