    Configuring Global Parameters (SRC CLI)

    If you change global variables for policies, the change takes effect the next time a service is activated; the change does not take effect for active service sessions.

    Use the following configuration statement to create a global parameter:

    policies global-parameters name {description description ; default-value default-value ; type type ; }

    To create a global parameter:

    1. From configuration mode, enter the global parameter configuration. For example, to create a parameter called bandwidth:
      user@host# edit policies global-parameters bandwidth
    2. (Optional) Enter a description for the parameter. You can provide extra information and examples of how the parameter is used.
      [edit policies global-parameters bandwidth]user@host# set description description
    3. (Optional) Configure a default value that the policy engine uses if no other values are provided during the parameter value acquisition process.

      See Parameter Types for valid values of each parameter type.

      [edit policies global-parameters bandwidth]user@host# set default-value default-value
    4. (Optional) Type of attribute for which you can use the parameter.
      [edit policies global-parameters bandwidth]user@host# set type type
    5. (Optional) Verify your configuration.
      [edit policies global-parameters bandwidth]
      user@host# show 
      default-value 5000000;
      type rate;
