router community-list

Use this command to identify BGP routes according to their COMMUNITY attributes (see RFC 1997). Each entry in the community list defines a rule for matching and selecting routes based on the setting of the COMMUNITY attribute. The default rule in a community list (which the FortiGate applies last) denies the matching of all routes.

config router community-list
    edit {name}
    # Configure community lists.
        set name {string}   Community list name. size[35]
        set type {standard | expanded}   Community list type (standard or expanded).
                standard  Standard community list type.
                expanded  Expanded community list type.
        config rule
            edit {id}
            # Community list rule.
                set id {integer}   ID. range[0-4294967295]
                set action {deny | permit}   Permit or deny route-based operations, based on the route's COMMUNITY attribute.
                        deny    Deny route-based operations.
                        permit  Permit or allow route-based operations.
                set regexp {string}   Ordered list of COMMUNITY attributes as a regular expression. size[255]
                set match {string}   Community specifications for matching a reserved community. size[255]
            next
    next
end

Additional information

The following section is for those options that require additional explanation.

type {standard | expanded}

Specify the type of community to match. If you select expanded, you must also specify a regular expression.

match {string}

Note: This field is available when type is set to standard.

Specify the criteria for matching a reserved community.

  • Use decimal notation to match one or more COMMUNITY attributes having the syntax AA:NN, where AA represents an AS, and NN is the community identifier. Delimit complex expressions with double-quotation marks (for example, “123:234 345:456”).
  • To match all routes in the Internet community, type internet.
  • To match all routes in the LOCAL_AS community, type local-AS. Matched routes are not advertised locally.
  • To select all routes in the NO_ADVERTISE community, type no-advertise. Matched routes are not advertised.
  • To select all routes in the NO_EXPORT community, type no-export. Matched routes are not advertised to EBGP peers. If a confederation is configured, the routes are advertised within the confederation.

regexp {string}

Note: This field is available when type is set to expanded.

Specify an ordered list of COMMUNITY attributes as a regular expression. The value or values are used to match a community. Delimit a complex regular expression value using double-quotation marks.
