While many Reactive Framework charms work on machines today, it’s recommended to create new charms with the Operator Framework. Learn more about the history of charms.


The BIRD project aims to develop a fully functional dynamic IP routing daemon primarily targeted on (but not limited to) Linux, FreeBSD and other UNIX-like systems and distributed under the GNU General Public License.

Currently this charm only supports deploying BIRD as a BGP route reflector. If you would like to deploy BIRD in other roles, please contact the charm maintainer.

For more information, check out the BIRD homepage.


To deploy this charm, simply run:

juju deploy bird

To use a BIRD daemon as a route reflector (e.g. for the open source Project Calico), type the following:

juju add-relation bird neutron-calico


There are no configuration options for BIRD at this time. If you need some, please contact the maintainer.


If you have a copy of the charm source locally, you can run unit tests from the charm's root directory with:

make test

Post deployment, you can verify the bird service is working with:

juju run --service=bird 'service bird status'
