I ́m trying to see the Administrative Distance in a BD but when I use the command show iproute I ́m only able to see the Metric and I don ́t seem to find a command that can show me the AD of a route. I have seen that you can configure/change the priority to the routing protocols will this be the equivalent to the AD on other devices like Cisco? What command could I use to see the AD or priority of a route?

Hi Cruz,  you can view the global routing protocol priorities using the following command.  And yes, these values are similar to the concept of AD in Cisco

show iproute priority vr 
# show iproute priority "VR-Default"
Direct                 10
MPLS                   20
Blackhole              50
Static                 1100
ICMP                   1200
EBGP                   1700
IBGP                   1900
OSPFIntra              2200
OSPFInter              2300
Isis                   2350
IsisL1                 2360
IsisL2                 2370
RIP                    2400
OSPFAsExt              3100
OSPFExt1               3200
OSPFExt2               3300
IsisL1Ext              3400
IsisL2Ext              3500
Bootp                  5000

To alter any of the priorities, use the following command:
# configure iproute priority   vr
