    no classifier-group { * | classifierName ]

    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.
    parent-group keyword and parentGroupName variable added in JunosE Release 7.2.0.
    external parent-group keyword and externalParentGroupName variable added in JunosE Release 8.0.0.


    Creates a classifier group for a policy list and assigns precedence to the specific CLACL in the group. This command accesses Classifier Group Configuration mode, in which you create policy rule configurations related to the specified CLACL. If a parent group was not created by the parent-group command, the parent-group keyword creates a parent group in a rate-limit hierarchy for IP, IPv6, L2TP, and MPLS. All packets matching the classifier are sent to the parent group for further processing, except for packets dropped by the classifier using the filter rule. More than one classifier group can have the same parent group, which enables you to create hierarchies. The no version removes the classifier group and its rules from the policy list.


    • *—Specifies that the router selects all packets from the interface associated with the policy list for this classifier group
    • classifierName—Name of a specific CLACL used to classify packets in this policy list
    • precValue—Precedence value for the CLACL, in the range 0–65535; a value of 100 is assigned if no value is specified
    • parentGroupName—Name of the parent group; if the parent group does not exist, naming the parent group creates an empty parent group

      Note: Secure policy lists, which are used for packet mirroring operations, do not support named classifier groups. You must use classifier-group *. Also, secure policy lists do not support the precedence keyword.

    • externalParentGroupName—External parent group name
    • parameterName—Parameter name
