CRS VLAN assignment in service vlan bridge

Hi there,

Can you please advise how the vlan port assignment work in case you set the Cloud Router Switch in service vlan bride mode ?
/interface ethernet switch
set bridge-type=service-vid-used-as-lookup-vid
In case of standard customer vlan bride mode, the vlan assignments dictate what port belongs to which vlan :
for instance :
/interface ethernet switch vlan
add ports=ether2,ether6 vlan-id=200 learn=yes
add ports=ether2,ether7 vlan-id=300 learn=yes
add ports=ether2,ether8 vlan-id=400 learn=yes
sets the specified ports into the vlan and then the traffic is switched between the members of the vlan

How does this assignment work in case of "service-vid-used-as-lookup-vid" option ?

Would it work in the same principle but take the service tag into consideration ? Meaning that it would switch traffic between the ports assigned to particular vlans but the vlan ID would be the service tag rather than the customer tag ?

Thank you very much in advance.

Am I right if I say that :

When I assign a port to a vlan :
/interface ethernet switch vlan
add ports=ether1 vlan-id=200 learn=yes
1) It should tag the incoming traffic with this tag ( in case of customer bridge mode, it should use the customer vlan (.1q) tags , and if service bridge is used, it should use service (.1ad) tags )

2) The traffic is switched internally based on either customer vlan ( if customer bridge mode is used ) or service vlan ( if service bridge mode is used )

3) If the traffic leaves the port ether1, it should strip the corresponding tag (.1q in customer bridge , .1ad in service bridge mode ).

Can somebody please clarify this for me ?

Thank you very much.
