Configuring Routing Policies (J-Web Procedure)

Note: This topic applies only to the J-Web Application package.

All routing protocols use the Junos OS routing table to store the routes that they learn and to determine which routes are advertised in the protocol packets. Routing policy allows you to control which routes the routing protocols store in and retrieve from the routing table on the routing device.

To configure routing policies for an EX Series switch using the J-Web interface:

  1. Select Configure > Routing > Policies.

    Note: After you make changes to the configuration on this page, you must commit the changes for them to take effect. To commit all changes to the active configuration, select Commit Options > Commit. See Using the Commit Options to Commit Configuration Changes for details about all commit options.

  2. Click one of the following options:
    • Global Options—Configures global options for policies. Enter information into the configuration page as described in Table 45.
    • Add—Configures a new policy. Select New and specify a policy name. To add terms, enter information into the configuration page as described in Table 46. Select Clone to create a copy of an existing policy.
    • Edit—Edits an existing policy. To modify an existing term, enter information into the configuration page as described in Table 46.
    • Term Up—Moves a term up in the list.
    • Term Down—Moves a term down in the list.
    • Delete—Deletes the selected policy.
    • Test Policy—Tests the policy. Use this option to check whether the policy produces the results that you expect.

Action tab

Action

Specifies the action to take if the conditions match.

Select a value from the list.

Default Action

Specifies that any action that is intrinsic to the protocol is overridden. This action is also nonterminating, so that various policy terms can be evaluated before the policy is terminated.

Next

Specifies the default control action if a match occurs, and there are no further terms in the current routing policy.

AS Path Prepend

Affixes an AS number at the beginning of the AS path. The AS numbers are added after the local AS number has been added to the path. This action adds an AS number to AS sequences only, not to AS sets. If the existing AS path begins with a confederation sequence or set, the affixed AS number is placed within a confederation sequence. Otherwise, the affixed AS number is placed with a nonconfederation sequence.

Enter a value.

AS Path Expand

Extracts the last AS number in the existing AS path and affixes that AS number to the beginning of the AS path n times, where n is a number from 1 through 32. The AS number is added before the local AS number has been added to the path. This action adds AS numbers to AS sequences only, not to AS sets. If the existing AS path begins with a confederation sequence or set, the affixed AS numbers are placed within a confederation sequence. Otherwise, the affixed AS numbers are placed within a nonconfederation sequence. This option is typically used in non-IBGP export policies.

Select the type and type a value.

Load Balance Per Packet

Specifies that all next-hop addresses in the forwarding table must be installed and have the forwarding table perform per-packet load balancing. This policy action allows you to optimize VPLS traffic flows across multiple paths.

Tag

Specifies the tag value. The tag action sets the 32-bit tag field in OSPF external link-state advertisement (LSA) packets.
