group (Configuring Group Name)


Hierarchy Level


Assign the security name to a group, and specify the SNMPv3 context applicable to the group. The default-context-prefix statement, when included, adds all the contexts configured on the device to the group, whereas the context-prefix context-prefix statement enables you to specify a context and to add that particular context to the group.

(Not applicable to the QFX Series and OCX Series.) When the context prefix is specified as default (for example, context-prefix default), the context associated with the master routing instance is added to the group. To specify a routing instance that is part of a logical system, specify it as logical system/routing instance. For example, to specify routing instance ri1 in logical system ls1, include context-prefix ls1/ri1.

The remaining statements under this hierarchy are explained separately.
