Table 14 Route Policy Step Fields  

Parameter
Description
Route Table

Name

The name of the route table to which this route policy is attached.

Lookup Key Matches:

Can be one of the following:

Exactly (default)—Specifies that the lookup policy searches for the exact match of the key in the specified table.

Prefix-Longest-Match—Specifies that the lookup policy searches for the longest prefix match.

Subdomain—Specifies that the lookup policy searches for the longest subdomain of the keys in the table. Domain name matching is case-sensitive and the most specific match prevails, and IP address matching must be exact. If a request contains a non-SIP request URI, this lookup fails. To prevent this from happening, check the check box next to Case Sensitive.

Subnet—Specifies that the lookup policy searches for the longest IP addresses of the keys in the table.

Prefix-Fixed-Length—Specifies that a fixed number of characters from the key is looked up instead of the complete key.

Case Sensitive

Check this check box if you want the lookup policy for the route table to be case sensitive.
