FortiManager includes Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) templates allowing you to provision BGP settings across multiple FortiGate devices.
BGP templates support the use of Device VDOM meta variables in the following places: router prefix-list, router-id, neighbor-range ( prefix ), router-map ( match-ip-address ), neighbor, and network ( prefix ).
- Go to Device Manager > Provisioning Templates > BGP Template.
- Click Create New in the toolbar.
- In the Create BGP Template pane, configure the following settings:
Name Enter a name for the BGP template. Local AS Enter the Local AS. Router ID Enter the Router ID. Neighbors
Click Create New to add a BGP neighbor.
The BGP neighbor group feature allows a large number of neighbors to be configured automatically based on a range of neighbors' source addresses.
Click Create New to add a BGP neighbor group.
Configure the neighbor ranges to be used by neighbor groups.
Click Create New to add a neighbor range and select the neighbor group to which the range applies.
