    Exactly Matching a Community List on a Route Map Overview

    You can use the exact-match keyword for the match community command to specify that a match exists only for the exact community numbers specified in the community list. The exact-match keyword applies only to a standard community list—that is, one not specified by a regular expression. You cannot use the exact-match keyword with a community list that is specified by a regular expression.

    Consider the following example:

    host1(config)#ip community-list 1 permit 100 200 300 host1(config)#exit host1#show ip community-list Community standard list 1 permit 0:100 0:200 0:300host1(config)#route-map example1 permit 10 host1(config-route-map)#match community 1 exact-match host1(config)#exit host1#show route-map example1 route-map example, permit, sequence 10 Match clauses: community (community-list filter): 1 exact-match

    The route map example1 permits a route only if the route contains community 100, community 200, and community 300, but no additional communities.

    If you do not specify the exact-match option, the route map also permits a match on a route that contains additional communities. For example, a route that contains communities 100, 200, 300, 400, and 450 matches.
