Redirection targets are pointed to by advanced forwarding policies as the destination for redirected traffic. Targets can be of two types, L3 or virtual wire. For L3 targets a virtual IP should be provided as it allows the system to track among which of the end-points belonging to the redirection target is the active one. For this type of redirect the packet’s destination MAC address is changed to match that of the Virtual IP. For virtual-wire redirection targets, the packets are untouched and forwarded directly to the end-point.


  • esi: ESI id, globally unique
  • name (Mandatory): Name of this redirection target
  • last_updated_by: ID of the user who last updated the object.
  • redundancy_enabled: Allow/Disallow redundant appliances and VIP
  • template_id: Template to which this redirection target belongs to
  • description: Description of this redirection target
  • destination_type: Determines the type of destination : redirection target or overlay mirror destination
  • virtual_network_id: Auto Generated by VSD. Each vPortTag with redundancy=enable and EndpointType != none will have a globally unique ESI & VNID generated by VSD
  • end_point_type (Mandatory): EndpointType defines the type of header rewrite and forwarding performed by VRS when the endpoint is used as a PBR destination. NONE type is deprecated. Possible values are NONE, L3, VIRTUAL_WIRE and NSG_VNF.
  • entity_scope: Specify if scope of entity is Data center or Enterprise level
  • trigger_type: Trigger type, THIS IS READ ONLY. Possible values are NONE, GARP, .
  • external_id: External object ID. Used for integration with third party systems
