Using Map Expressions in Application Protocol Conditions


The application protocol condition is a case in which you might use a map expression to define multiple attributes in one option—the application-protocol option. Maps are a list of attributeName=value pairs separated by commas and enclosed in curly brackets. For example, the map {applicationProtocol=“ftp” , sourcePort=123, inactivityTimeout=60} supplies the application protocol, source port, and inactivity timeout in one option.

Another map {applicationType=“tcp” , inactivityTimeout=60, destinationPort=80} supplies the protocol, inactivity timeout, and destination port.

You can also create a local parameter, add a map expression as the default value of the parameter, and then enter the local parameter in the application-protocol option.
