refresh (Op Scripts)


Hierarchy Level


Overwrite the local copy of all enabled op scripts or a single enabled op script with the copy located at the source URL, as specified in the source statement at the same hierarchy level. If the load-scripts-from-flash statement is configured, the device refreshes the scripts on the flash drive instead of the hard disk.

The update operation occurs as soon as you issue the set refresh configuration mode command. Issuing the set refresh command does not add the refresh statement to the configuration. Thus the command behaves like an operational mode command by executing an operation, instead of adding a statement to the configuration.

Before you refresh a local script from an HTTPS server, you must first configure the cert-file statement for that script in supported releases. Specify the absolute path to the certificate (Root CA or self-signed) that the device will use to validate the server's certificate during the refresh operation.


On the QFabric system, op scripts are stored in the /pbdata/mgd_shared/partition-ip/var/db/scripts/op/ directory on the Director device.

As of Junos OS Release 18.1R1, you can specify which routing instance the update is done through. To specify the routing instance to use for updating op scripts, configure the routing instance in two places in the CLI:

If you enable the non-default management instance and use mgmt_junos for routing-instance-name, you can configure scripts to update using the dedicated management instance mgmt_junos.
