Examples: Configuring BGP Communities as Routing Policy Match Conditions

Create a community named dunedin and apply it in a routing policy statement:

[edit]policy-options {community dunedin members [ 56:2379 23:46944 ];policy-statement from-dunedin {from community dunedin;then {metric 2;preference 100;next policy;}}}

The preceding example modifies the metric and preference for routes that contain members of community dunedin only.

Note: You cannot set or add a community in a policy whose members use regular expressions or a wildcard.

Delete a particular community from a route, leaving remaining communities untouched:

[edit]policy-options {community dunedin members 701:555;policy-statement delete-dunedin {then {community delete dunedin;}}}

Remove any community from a route with the AS number of 65534 or 65535:

[edit]policy-options {community my-as1-transit members [ 65535:10 65535:11 ];community my-as2-transit members [ 65534:10 65534:11 ];community my-wild members [ 65534:* 65535:* ];policy-statement delete-communities {from {community [ my-as1-transit my-as2-transit ];}then {community delete my-wild;}}}

Match the set of community members 5000, 5010, 5020, 5030, and so on up to 5090:

[edit]policy-options {community customers members "^1111:50.0$";policy-statement advertise-customers {from community customers;then accept;}}

Reject routes that are longer than /19 in Class A space, /16 in Class B space, and /24 in Class C space:

[edit policy-options]community auckland-accept members 555:1;policy-statement drop-specific-routes {from {route-filter upto /19 {community add auckland-accept;next policy;}route-filter upto /16 {community add auckland-accept;next policy;}route-filter upto /24 {community add auckland-accept;next policy;}}then reject;}

In the preceding example, for routes that are not rejected, the tag auckland-accept is added.

Create routing policies to handle peer and customer communities. This example does the following:

  • Customer routes that match the attributes defined in the lcl20x-low communities, for example, lcl201-low, are accepted and their local preference is changed to 80.
  • Customer routes that match the attributes defined in the lcl20x-high communities, for example, lcl201-high, are accepted and have their local preference changed to 120.
  • Internal routes that match the attributes defined in the internal20x communities, for example, internal201, are rejected and not advertised to customers.
  • Routes received from a peer are assigned a metric of 10 and the community defined in peer201.
  • Routes that match the attributes defined in the prepend20x-x communities, for example, prepend201-1, prepend201-2, or prepend201-3, are sent to peers and have the AS number 201 prepended the specified number of times.
  • Routes that match the attributes defined in the peer20x, custpeer20x, and internal20x communities, for example, peer201, custpeer201, or internal201, respectively, are rejected and not advertised to peers.
    [edit]policy-options {community internal201 members 201:112;community internal202 members 202:112;community internal203 members 203:112;community internal204 members 204:112;community internal205 members 205:112;community peer201 members 201:555;community peer202 members 202:555;community peer203 members 203:555;community peer204 members 204:555;community peer205 members 205:555;community custpeer201 members 201:20;community custpeer202 members 202:20;community custpeer203 members 203:20;community custpeer204 members 204:20;community custpeer205 members 205:20;community prepend201-1 members 201:1;community prepend202-1 members 202:1;community prepend203-1 members 203:1;community prepend204-1 members 204:1;community prepend205-1 members 205:1;community prepend201-2 members 201:2;community prepend202-2 members 202:2;community prepend203-2 members 203:2;community prepend204-2 members 204:2;community prepend205-2 members 205:2;community prepend201-3 members 201:3;community prepend202-3 members 202:3;community prepend203-3 members 203:3;community prepend204-3 members 204:3;community prepend205-3 members 205:3;community lcl201-low members 201:80;community lcl202-low members 202:80;community lcl203-low members 203:80;community lcl204-low members 204:80;community lcl205-low members 205:80;community lcl20x-high members "^20 [ 1-5 ] : 120$";policy-statement in-customer {term term1 {from {protocol bgp;community lcl20x-high;}then {local-preference 80;accept;}}term term2 {from {protocol bgp;community [ lcl201-high lcl202-high lcl203-high lcl204-high lcl205-high ];}then local-preference 120;}then next policy;}policy-statement out-customer {term term1 {from {protocol bgp;community [internal201 internal202 internal203 internal204 internal205];}then reject;}then next policy;}policy-statement in-peer {from protocol bgp;then {metric 10;community set peer201;}}policy-statement out-peer {term term1 {from {protocol bgp;community [ prepend201-1 prepend202-1 prepend203-1 prepend204-1 prepend205-1 ];}then as-path-prepend 201;}term term2 {from {protocol bgp;community [ prepend201-2 prepend202-2 prepend203-2 prepend204-2 prepend205-2 ];}then as-path-prepend "201 201";}term term3 {from {protocol bgp;community [ prepend201-3 prepend202-3 prepend203-3 prepend204-3 prepend205-3 ];}then as-path-prepend "201 201 201";}term term4 {from {protocol bgp;community [ peer201 peer202 peer203 peer204 peer205 custpeer201 custpeer202 custpeer203 custpeer204 custpeer205 internal201 internal202 internal203 internal204 internal205 ];}then reject;}then next policy;}}
