Hierarchy Level


Configure parameters for Junos configuration data in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format.



When you load JSON configuration data on the device, reorder list entries so that list keys precede other siblings and appear in the order required by the schema. Configuring this option enables you to load JSON configuration data that contains unordered list entries, that is, entries where the list key is not necessarily the first element.


When you configure the reorder-list-keys statement, the load operation can take significantly longer to parse the configuration, depending on the size of the configuration and the number of lists. For large configurations or configurations with many lists, we recommend that you instead use the request system convert-json-configuration command to convert the configuration before loading it on the device.
