    Multiple Values in a Route Map Match Entry Overview

    You can specify more than one value in each match entry of a route map by using any of the following match commands:

    • match as-path
    • match community
    • match distance
    • match extcommunity-list
    • match ip address
    • match ip next-hop
    • match ipv6 address
    • match ipv6 next-hop
    • match ipv6 route-source
    • match level
    • match metric
    • match policy-list
    • match route-type
    • match tag

    A clause with multiple values matches a route that contains any of the values; that is, the multiple values are logically joined by an OR operator.

    host1(config-route-map)#match ip address lisbon madrid host1(config-route-map)#match as-path 10 20 30

    You can also issue successive match commands to add new values to a route map entry for any of the preceding commands.

    host1(config-route-map)#match ip address boston host1(config-route-map)#match ip address newyork

    This method is equivalent to issuing the following single command:

    host1(config-route-map)#match ip address boston newyork

    You cannot specify multiple values for the match metric-type command because it accepts only two values that are mutually exclusive. Specifying both values has the same effect as not specifying a metric type at all; specifying the same value more than once has no meaning.
