Release Information

Command introduced in Junos OS Release 9.2.

Starting with Junos OS Release 18.2R1, IDP policy is directly assigned in the security policy rule. This is to simplify IDP policy usage and to provide flexibility to have multiple policies active at the same time. As a part of session interest check IDP will enabled if IDP policy is present in any of the matched rules. IDP policy is activated in security policies, by permitting the IDP policy within the application services using the set security policies from-zone zone-name to-zone zone-name policy policy-name then permit application-services idp-policy idp-policy-name command. Since IDP policy name is directly use in the security policy rule, the [edit security idp active-policy policy-name] statement is deprecated.
