term (candidate-uplink-policy)


Hierarchy Level


Create and configure a term in a candidate uplink satellite policy within a Junos Fusion.

A term in a candidate uplink port policy in a Junos Fusion is used to apply an uplink failure detection configuration to certain satellite devices, based on their product model only. The more complex options that are available for other policies in Junos OS—such as the terms available for routing policies—are not available for candidate uplink port policies.



The user-defined name of the term.

A term is a named structure in which match conditions and configuration statements are defined. A candidate uplink policy policy can contain multiple terms. The terms are evaluated in the order they appear in the configuration. The first term that matches a satellite device is applied to that satellite device.


The statements under the from statement define the satellite device model match criteria and uplink failure detection configuration for the term. Each term can contain only one from statement.

The remaining statements are explained separately.
