By default, when you change a rule-based policy such as access rules, the changes become effective immediately. With transactional model configured, the rules are not active until after compilation.

Review the ASA configuration and verify that the following command is not configured.

asp rule-engine transactional-commit access-group

If transactional-commit access-group has been configured, this is a finding.
Fix Text (F-43045r665844_fix)
Remove the command asp rule-engine transactional-commit access-group

ASA(config)# no asp rule-engine transactional-commit access-group
