How do I set a static route rank in VSX R80.10

I am trying to migrate some non-VSX gateways to VSX which use higher static route ranks for our DR site for failover incase the Primary site (which uses OSPF with a default rank of 150 for E2 routes) goes down

But I am unable to find where to configure the static route rank as the set static-route is not available on the VSX CLI and there is no option in the Dashboard to configure the rank

Anyone done this before in VSX ?

This should be possible normally under particular virtual system configuration via CLISH.

See protocol Rank in guide - Gaia Advanced Routing R80.10 Administration Guide 

Configuring Protocol Rank - Gaia Clish (protocol-rank)

Syntax

set protocol‑rank protocol

        bgp rank <0—255> | default

        rip rank <0—255> | default

        ospf rank <0—255> | default

        ospfase rank <0—255> | default

        ospf3 rank <1—255> | default

        ospf3ase rank <1—255> | default

Parameter

Description

rank <0—255>

The protocol rank value.

bgp rank default

The default rank value for BGP is 170.

rip rank default

The default rank value for RIP is 100.

ospf rank default

The default rank value for OSPF is 10.

ospfase rank default

The default rank value for OSPF ASE routes is 150.

ospf3 rank default

The default rank value for IPv6 OSPF (OSPFv3) is 10

ospf3ase rank default

The default rank value for IPv6 OSPF (OSPFv3) ASE routes is 150

Isnt this for changing the rank of the protocol itself (from default) rather than the rank for a particular static route ?

Yes this will change it for whole protocol. 

Re: How do I set a static route rank in VSX R80.10

So is there a way to change the rank of a particular route in VSX then ?

Re: How do I set a static route rank in VSX R80.10

Did you ever find an answer to this question?   We need to do similar action to raise the metric of default route, in order to test alternate Internet path to another ISP, when OSPF should propagate the route change through network.
