If you use images in the header, ensure to use base64 encoded image format in the image tag.

name: app-stylebook-with-HTML-tags
namespace: com.examples.stylebooks
version: `1.0`
display-name: `Example App StyleBook`
header: 'This <b> StyleBook </b> defines all the app configuration for <i>Load Balanced Application </i>. The following image describes the target deployment for the app <img id=`b64img` src=`data:image/png;base64,` />'


Deliver Autoscale applications that are outside of ADC instances’ virtual network or VPC

When application servers and ADC instances are situated on different Virtual networks, VPC Networks, and Subnets, provide the CIDR block of a subnet or VPC where you have application servers. Specify the CIDR block in the Origin Server field while configuring the provision parameters. This way you can deliver apps from the application servers that are situated outside of the ADC instances’ virtual network or VPC network.

Earlier, this feature was available only for the Autoscale groups in AWS, now you can use this feature in Azure and Google Cloud also.
