Configuring an AS Path Group in a BGP Routing Policy (NSM Procedure)

Autonomous System (AS) path group consists of multiple AS paths. You can define match conditions based on the AS path groups. You can create named AS paths under an AS path group and then include the AS path group in a routing policy.

To configure an AS path group for a BGP routing policy in NSM:

  1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. In the Devices list, double-click the device to select it.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. In the configuration tree, expand Policy Options.
  5. Select As Path Group.
  6. Add or modify the parameters as specified in Table 31.
  7. Click one:
    • OK—To save the changes.
    • Cancel—To cancel the modifications.
    • Apply — To apply the protocol settings.

Note: After you make changes to a device configuration, you must push that updated device configuration to the physical security device for those changes to take effect. You can update multiple devices at one time. See the Updating Devices section in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.
