policy {
    route {
      prefix-list6 list-name {
        rule rule-num {
            action {
                deny
                permit

       }
    }
}

Use the set form of this command to define the action taken when received packets satisfy the match criteria for this rule.

If the action for a rule is deny, packets meeting the match criteria of the rule are silently dropped. If the action for the rule is permit, destination-based routing is performed; that is, packets are sent using the normal forwarding channels.

Use the delete form of this command to restore the default action for packets satisfying the match criteria.

Use the show form of this command to display action settings for this rule.
