Creating a connection between two Microsoft Azure Gov locations

Note: You can only use a service key that isn't assigned to an active connection. The ExpressRoute service key is a unique service key and is different from the service key for your cloud service from Azure.

To create a connection between two Microsoft Azure Gov locations:

Dynamic Connections (showing list view)
Dynamic Connections (Create Connection)
  1. In the From Connection Type field, select Microsoft (Azure Gov).
  1. In the To Connection Type field, select Microsoft (Azure Gov).
dynamic-connections create connection microsoft azure to microsoft azure gov select endpoints
  1. Fill in the information for the connection:

    1. Fill in the two ExpressRoute Service Key fields with the service keys provided by Microsoft. (Note: You can only use a service key that isn't assigned to an active connection. The ExpressRoute service key is a unique service key and is different from the service key for your cloud service from Azure.)

      Once you fill in the ExpressRoute service key, Control Center retrieves connection information from Microsoft.

    2. In the Billing Method field, select whether you want hourly or monthly billing.

    3. In the Class of Service field, select whether you want BasicEnhanced, or Dedicated. (Higher classes of service offer higher availability SLAs and allow you to increase traffic prioritization for your EVC.)

    4. In the Bandwidth field, select the bandwidth for the connection. By default, Control Center selects the lowest bandwidth associated with the service key you entered. You can adjust the bandwidth up/down based on your needs.

      Control Center displays pricing for the bandwidth you selected.

    5. In the Connection Name field, type a name for the connection you're creating.
  1. Click Next.
  1. Review your connection information and then click the I agree with the terms and conditions checkbox. (To enable the checkbox, scroll to the bottom of the terms and conditions.)
