  2. Create or select a Network Policy.
  3. Select Switching > Routing > Network Allocation and scroll to the Routing table.
  4. Select to add or to edit.
  5. Enter the Routing Attributes according to the table below:

IPv4 Interface Routing configuration can also be performed at the device-level, within the Manage Devices > Select Supported Device > Configure > Network Allocation > Interface Configuration page. If an IPv4 Interface is created from device level configuration, then a Network Allocation created from a Network Policy is not applicable. IPv4 Interfaces for devices are still viewable within the Switching > Routing > Network Allocation section.
