community (Routing Options)


Hierarchy Level


Associate BGP community information with a static, aggregate, or generated route.


BGP large community is available only for static routes.


No BGP community information is associated with static routes.


community-ids—One or more community identifiers. The community-ids format varies according to the type of attribute that you use.

The BGP community attribute format is as-number:community-value:

  • as-number—AS number of the community member. It can be a value from 1 through 65,535. The AS number can be a decimal or hexadecimal value.

  • community-value—Identifier of the community member. It can be a number from 0 through 65,535.

For more information about BGP community attributes, see the “Configuring the Extended Communities Attribute” section in the Routing Policies, Firewall Filters, and Traffic Policers User Guide.

For specifying the BGP community attribute only, you also can specify community-ids as one of the following well-known community names defined in RFC 1997:

  • no-advertise—Routes containing this community name are not advertised to other BGP peers.

  • no-export—Routes containing this community name are not advertised outside a BGP confederation boundary.

  • no-export-subconfed—Routes containing this community are advertised to IBGP peers with the same AS number, but not to members of other confederations.

  • llgr-stale—Adds a community to a long-lived stale route when it is readvertised.

  • no-llgr—Marks routes which a BGP speaker does not want to be retained by LLGR. The Notification message feature does not have any associated configuration parameters.


Extended community attributes are not supported at the [edit routing-options] hierarchy level. You must configure extended communities at the [edit policy-options] hierarchy level. For information about configuring extended communities, see the Routing Policies, Firewall Filters, and Traffic Policers User Guide.

As defined in RFC 8092, BGP large community uses 12-byte encoding and the format for BGP large community-ids is:

large indicates BGP large community.

global-administrator is the administrator. It is a 4-byte AS number.

assigned-number is a 4-byte value used to identify the local provider. BGP large community uses two 4-byte assigned number to identify the local provider.
