clear ip bgp ip-address soft out
When the network administrator has completed the changes to filters and route-maps that are applied on the outgoing information (changes that will implement a new routing policy), the clear ip bgp ip-address soft out command is executed on the router in privileged EXEC mode. After the command has been entered, the router will not tear the session down. Instead, the table version number of the neighbor is reset to 0. When the next update interval for the neighbor arrives, the local router will go through the entire BGP table and find that all the routes need to be sent to the neighbor because they all have a table version number higher than 0.
This process causes all the BGP routes to be resent through the new filters.
