Static route and Policy route process order

I am coming from the Cisco world, and in that world Cisco Policy Base Routing (PBR) is processed outside of the route table, so PBR will get processed before static routes or any route currently in the table.

 

Is this is the same behavior on Fortigate firewalls? What is the order of routing on the Fortigate firewalls?

 

Thank you

yes same behavior, PBR is side-steping the routing information base. Its looked at first and packets are based on that forwarding table.
