Default Action
policy app-route-policy policy-name default-action sla-class sla-class-name
policy control-policy policy-name default-action (accept | reject)

Default action to take if an item being evaluated by a policy matches none of the match conditions. If you configure no policy (specifically, if you configure no match–action sequences within a policy), the default action, by default, is to accept all items. If you configure a policy with one or more match–action sequences, the default action, by default, is to either reject or drop the item, depending on the policy type.

Operational Commands
