BGP Filter

A BGP filter resource (BGPFilter) represents a way to control routes imported by and exported to BGP peers specified using a BGP peer resource (BGPPeer).

The BGPFilter rules are applied sequentially: the action for the first rule that matches is executed immediately. If an address does not match any explicit BGP filter rule, the default action is Accept.

In order for a BGPFilter to be used in a BGP peering, its name must be added to filters of the corresponding BGPPeer resource.

For kubectl commands, the following case-sensitive aliases may be used to specify the resource type on the CLI: bgpfilters.crd.projectcalico.org
