There is not metric-type option in OSPF redistribute section of web-interface. By default FRR makes redistribution with route-map without options. But even I use manual route-map for redistribution instead there is no set metric-type option for OSPF IPv4 in web interface of route-map creation.

The OSPF metric option under Route Maps, "Metric" in the drop-down "Metric Action". The options there are the only options offered by FRR for route-maps. It appears FRR is not capable of setting the v4 type there, or perhaps it's the same for v4 and v6 but their documentation only lists 6.

I can look into adding an option to the OSPF GUI but the primary goal initially is feature parity with the Quagga package, which does not have that option either.

This should be possible with FRR pkg version 0.6:

#3 Updated by Constantine Kormashev about 1 year ago

I updated to latest FRR version: 0.5.2 which is based on frr6-6.0.2_1 and there is still not External type metrics settings for OSPF, only for OSPFv3 (IPv6) in route-map section:

0.5.2 is not the latest version. The latest version is 0.6, which is what I said in my comment. FRR pkg version 0.6 is only now available on 2.5.0 snapshots. Use it there and try again.

Tried latest stable 2.4.4-p3 with 6.0.2, everything is fine, I can assign metric type on any types of redistributed routes.
