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 are required for importing routes:

  • vrf-target - When you configure only the vrf-target statement without the vrf-import statement, by default all routes matching the specified target community are accepted.
  • vrf-import - When you configure only the vrf-import statement, there is no default action. Only routes accepted in the configured vrf-import policy statement are imported.
