Hierarchy Level


Specify how routes are imported into the routing table (routing-instance-name.inet.0) of the local device from the remote device.

You can configure multiple import policies on the device.

One of the following statements is required for importing routes:

  • vrf-target - When you configure the vrf-target community statement without the vrf-import statement, by default the device accepts all routes matching the specified target community.
  • vrf-import - When you configure the vrf-import statement instead of the vrf-target statement with a community value, there is no default action. The device imports only the routes accepted in the configured vrf-import policy statement.


policy-names—Names for the import policies.

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.
