Description
This article explains the Traffic shaping profile additional priorities options.

This feature increases the shaping group from three priorities to five priorities.
There are no changes to traffic shaper and global traffic priority levels. Only the traffic shaping profile priority levels are increased.



Solution
In the Traffic Shaping Profile, the Priority field now has a Top and Critical priority in addition to High, Medium, and Low priority.

To set shaping group priority in the GUI:

1) Go to Policy & Objects -> Traffic Shaping Profile.
2) Create or edit a traffic shaping profile.
3) In the Default Shaping Group and Additional Shaping Groups sections, the Priority dropdown list has five priorities: top, Critical, High, Medium, and Low.


4) Select the Priority and click 'OK'.

To set shaping group priority in the CLI:
In shaping-profile, class-id 10 has High priority while class-id 30 has Top priority.
#config firewall shaping-profile
    edit "Ingress_Traffic"
        set default-class-id 10
        config shaping-entries
            edit 1
                set class-id 10
                set guaranteed-bandwidth-percentage 10
                set maximum-bandwidth-percentage 10
            next
            edit 2
                set class-id 30
                set priority top
                set guaranteed-bandwidth-percentage 30
                set maximum-bandwidth-percentage 30
            next
        end
    next
end
