BGP templates

FortiManager includes Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) templates allowing you to provision BGP settings across multiple FortiGate devices.

Note

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 ).

To create a BGP template:
  1. Go to Device Manager > Provisioning Templates > BGP Template.
  2. Click Create New in the toolbar.
  3. 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.

    Neighbor Group

    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.

    Neighbor Ranges

    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.

    Networks

    Add IP/Netmask for networks.

    IPv6 Networks

    Add IP/Netmask for IPv6 networks.

    IPv4 Redistribute

    Enable Connected, RIP, OSPF, Static, and ISIS for IPv4 redistribute.

    IPv6 Redistribute

    Enable Connected, RIP, OSPF, Static, and ISIS for IPv6 redistribute.

    Dampening

    Expand to see dampening options.

    Graceful Restart

    Expand to see options for graceful restarting.

    Advanced Options

    Expand to see advanced options.

    Best Path Selection

    Expand to see options for best path selection.

    Note

    When configuring a BGP Neighbor or Neighbor Group, routing objects can be created and edited inline under IPv4 Filtering and IPv6 Filtering. You can configure the following:

    • Route Map
    • Access List
    • IPv6 Access List
    • Prefix List
    • IPv6 Prefix List
    • AS Path List
    • Community List
  4. Click OK to save the template.
    See the FortiGate Administration Guide on the Fortinet Docs Libary for more information on BGP.
