Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Description

Associate a routing policy when configuring an aggregate or generated route’s destination prefix in the routes part of the aggregate or generate statement. This provides the equivalent of an import routing policy filter for the destination prefix. That is, each potential contributor to an aggregate route, along with any aggregate options, is passed through the policy filter. The policy then can accept or reject the route as a contributor to the aggregate route and, if the contributor is accepted, the policy can modify the default preferences. The contributor with the numerically smallest prefix becomes the most preferred, or primary, contributor. A rejected contributor still can contribute to a less specific aggregate route. If you do not specify a policy filter, all candidate routes contribute to an aggregate route.

Options

policy-name—Name of a routing policy.

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.
