Hierarchy Level


The source address filter list is a user configured list of individual source address filters, typically used to match an incoming route address to unicast source addresses in Multiprotocol BGP (MBGP) and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP) environments, that you create at the [edit policy-options] hierarchy level. Each item in the list consists of a complete source address filter statement, made up of a source-prefix address, a match-type, and an optional action.

For example:

Once configured, source-address-filter-list is used by referencing its source-address-filter-list-name in a policy-statement at the [edit policy-options policy-statement policy-statement-name term term-name from] hierarchy level. Source address filter lists can be used in conjunction with other source-address-filter statements.

For example:
