Hierarchy Level


username is the name that identifies the SNMPv3 user.

target-parameters-name is the name associated with the message processing and security parameters that are used in sending notifications to a particular management target.

When you configure SNMP trap notifications for subscriber secure policy on MX Series routers, you must configure the parameters as follows:

  • Message-processing model: v3

  • Security level: privacy

  • Security model: usm

target-address-name is the string that identifies the target address.

tag-name defines the target addresses to which this notification is sent. This notification is sent to all the target-addresses that have this tag in their tag list. The tag-name is not included in the notification.

trap is the type of notification.

name is the name assigned to the notification.

profile-name is the name assigned to the notify filter.

oid is the object identifier. All MIB objects represented by this statement have the specified OID as a prefix. You can specify it either by a sequence of dotted integers or by a subtree name.

  • include—Include the subtree of MIB objects represented by the specified OID.

  • exclude—Exclude the subtree of MIB objects represented by the specified OID.

authentication-password is the password used to generate the key used for authentication.

SNMPv3 has specific requirements when you create plain-text passwords on a router or switch:

  • The password must be at least eight characters long.

  • The password can include alphabetic, numeric, and special characters, but it cannot include control characters.
