Force BGP Peering over a certain interface/path

L3 Networker

I have many paths through my network and my palo altos are choosing to peer iBGP with each other over the Northbound paths to the next level of of switches. I want them to use the links south bound to my datacenter core to peer BGP. They are peering with loopbacks. how do you weight routes or set costing within ospf on the palo?

For OSPF metrics:

Network tab -> Virtual Routers -> Virtual router name -> OSPF -> Click the 'Area' -> then interface tab. From there you can add metrics to make certain routes less desierable.
