term (Dynamic Profiles)


Hierarchy Level


Define terms for fast update filters.


action—(Optional) An action to take if conditions match. If you do not specify an action, the packets that match the conditions in the from statement are accepted.

action-modifiers—(Optional) One or more actions to perform on a packet.

from—(Optional) Match packet fields to values. If not included, all packets are considered to match and the actions and action modifiers in the then statement are taken.

match-conditions—One or more conditions to make a match.

only-at-create—(Optional) Specify that the term is added only when the fast update filter is first created. No subsequent changes can be made to the term in the filter. Use this option only for terms that do not include subscriber-specific data in their match conditions, such as common or default terms (for example, counting the default drop packets).

term-name—Name that identifies the term. The name can contain letters, numbers, and hyphens (-), and can be up to 64 characters long. To include spaces in the name, enclose it in quotation marks (“ ”).

then—(Optional) Actions to take on matching packets. If not included and a packet matches all the conditions in the from statement, the packet is accepted.
