To enable MP-BGP to carry flow-specification NLRI for the inet address family, include the flow statement:
Note: Unicast flow routes are supported for the default instance, VRF instances, and virtual-router instances only. Instance type is configured by including the instance-type statement at the [edit routing-instance instance-name] hierarchy level.
For a list of hierarchy levels at which you can include this statement, see the statement summary section for this statement.
Flow routes received using the BGP NLRI messages are validated before they are installed into the flow routing table instance-name.inetflow.0. The validation procedure is described in the Internet draft draft-ietf-idr-flow-spec-00.txt, Dissemination of Flow Specification Rules. You can bypass the validation process and use your own specific import policy.
To disable the validation procedure and use an import policy instead, include the no-validate statement at the [edit protocols bgp group group-name family inet flow] hierarchy level:
- no-validate policy-name;
