protocol
string / required
    Choices:
  • ospf
  • ospf3
  • static
  • connected
  • rip
  • isis
Specifies the protocol for configuring redistribute information.
route_map
string
Specifies the route map reference.
router_id
string
Configures the BGP routing process router-id value.
operation
string
    Choices:
  • merge ←
  • replace
  • override
  • delete
Specifies the operation to be performed on the BGP process configured on the device.
In case of merge, the input configuration will be merged with the existing BGP configuration on the device.
In case of replace, if there is a diff between the existing configuration and the input configuration, the existing configuration will be replaced by the input configuration for every option that has the diff.
In case of override, all the existing BGP configuration will be removed from the device and replaced with the input configuration.
In case of delete the existing BGP configuration will be removed from the device.
