delete

 

Syntax

Release Information

Command introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

Description

Delete a statement or identifier. All subordinate statements and identifiers contained within the specified statement path are deleted with it.

Deleting a statement or an identifier effectively “unconfigures” or disables the functionality associated with that statement or identifier.

If you do not specify statement-path or identifier, the entire hierarchy, starting at the current hierarchy level, is removed.

Note

For Junos OS Evolved, if you use the delete configuration command at the top level of the configuration, you cannot commit the resulting empty configuration. At a minimum, the root authentication password is required.

Options

statement-path(Optional) Path to an existing statement or identifier. Include this if the statement or identifier to be deleted is not at the current hierarchy level.
identifier(Optional) Name of the statement or identifier to delete.

Required Privilege Level

configure—To enter configuration mode, but other required privilege levels depend on where the statement is located in the configuration hierarchy.
