Missing prefix-list and access-list option from ipv6 route-map
Needs testing, Requires assessmentPublicFEATURE REQUEST

Description

Hi,

For ipv4 you have the following option in route-map:
set policy route-map test rule 10 match ip nexthop
-access-list
-prefix-list

For ipv6, you only have this:
set policy route-map test rule 10 match ipv6 nexthop
-ipv6 address
possible completion is only ipv6 address no access-list or prefix-list

This apply for all 1.3 or 1.4 versions

Already implemented in FRR 8.x, so for first, we should migrate to FRR 8.x if it is possible T3753

Thank you! I can't wait for it to be implemented 💃

Hi,

I have tested with vyos-1.4-rolling-202111281249 and is still missing, I can confirm that the frr version is 8.1.

Thanks

Still the same on vyos-1.4-rolling-202201020317-amd64.iso

@egoistdream Just check when this feature was merged. It was implemented in FRR 24th of November, but the latest FRR release was 9th of November
https://frrouting.org/release/8.1/

So you won't see this feature in 8.1

Hi,

FRRouting Release 8.2.2 was relased, when we will see this implemented?

Thank you!

Hi @egoistdream

We've added this feature in our latest nightly building release, could you check it ?

Hi @fernando

I just check and on version: vyos-1.4-rolling-202205310217 is still missing :(

Regards

yes, it was added on this version vyos-1.4-rolling-202205311706, please check again

thanks

Hi @fernando

Yes on this version it is available the requested options for ipv6:

-access-list
-prefix-list

But now you have different options again:

For ipv4:

set policy route-map test rule 10 match ip nexthop
-access-list
-address
-prefix-len
-prefix-list
-type

for IPv6
set policy route-map test rule 10 match ipv6 nexthop
-access-list
-address
-prefix-list

I think the same options should be implemented for both ipv4 and ipv6 as long as they have the same functionality.

Thank you
