export (Protocols BGP)


Hierarchy Level


Apply one or more policies to routes being exported from the routing table into BGP.

If you specify more than one policy, they are evaluated in the order specified, from left to right, and the first matching filter is applied to the route. If no routes match the filters, the routing table exports into BGP only the routes that it learned from BGP. If an action specified in one of the policies manipulates a route characteristic, the policy framework software carries the new route characteristic forward during the evaluation of the remaining policies. For example, if the action specified in the first policy of a chain sets a route’s metric to 500, this route matches the criterion of metric 500 defined in the next policy.
