    1. IPSec tunnel over ExpressRoute

      We require confidentiality and integrity of our network links into Azure, and want to use ExpressRoute. Currently the Azure gateway ExpressRoute SKU does not support IPSec.

      Can you please add IPSec support to ExpressRoute, or to the Azure gateway Expressroute SKU.

    2. Allow User-Defined Routes (UDR) to work across ExpressRoute.

      Currently, UDRs are limited to IP addresses which appear in a single peer group of VNETs (i.e., in the same Azure data center location). I would like to have a NextHop to a firewall that can serve multiple regions. The traffic would flow across the ExpressRoute (MPLS-style).

      While most deployments are in a few Azure data centers, there are some which are elsewhere. It is less economical to have a separate firewall instance for each region. With UDR across ExpressRoute (or VPNs), that would be a money saver.

    3. Monitoring BGP Routes Updates - Routes addition or deletion

      We are looking for option to monitor BGP Routes which are propagated to Azure Virtual network through ExpressRoute established and managed by network provider, BT . This is to notify network admins when new network is added as BGP Routes in Azure Virtual Network.
      It would be good if this can be monitored using OMS log analytics. As an alternative option, if route addition is logged as activity log, then it can be used for alerting and notification.

    5. Traffic analysis on ExpressRoute connections on top dataflows

      If there are many VNET's connected to the ExpressRoute, traffic of one VNET can impact other VNET's traffic. We need a way to see which src_ip and dst_ip traffic is responsible for filling up the ExpressRoute. Current NSG flow data does not include amount of data between endpoints, thus we need another way of analysing top consumers of the ExpressRoute.
