    1. Expressroute with multiple subscriptions

      For EA accounts with multiple subscriptions underneath, we are limited to only a single subscription connected with our expressroute circuit. This creates a tradeoff between billing granularity and expressroute usage since everything has to be in one large subscription to benefit from expressroute. Please make it possible to use our expressroute connection across all of our subscriptions.

    2. Route Summarization in UDRs to direct traffic to Virtual Appliance

      For VNETS connected with Express Route, BGP Routes populate the Azure System Routes. So, we have to use UDRs to direct traffic to go to the Virtual Appliance Firewall, Traffic towards Any Route not in the UDR prefers the BGP Route and sends the traffic to the Virtual Network Gateway. This renders the summarized routes in UDR useless , as any route with a smaller subnet in BGP Routes, is preferred over the summarized UDR route, and the traffic for that route goes to the VNET Gateway instead of the Virtual Firewall.

      This limits our ability to route effectively, and…

    4. Exclude subnet from Expressroute connected vnet

      I'd like the ability to exclude a subnet from a VNET where you connected an Expressroute to. We want to have a DMZ subnet in a vnet that can only be reached through a virtual appliance (a Check Point vSEC gateway). But after connecting Expressroute, the servers on this subnet also learn the routes causing them to bypass the firewall setup.
      It would be great if we could exclude a subnet.

    5. Unable to add a tag to an ExpressRoute Circuit.

      Unable to add a tag to an ExpressRoute Circuit.

      When attempting to add a tag to a resource of type ExpressRoute Circuit, I get an error message "The requested resource does not support http method 'PATCH'."

      Seems like the resource provider for ExpressRoute doesn't provide all API calls that are required for supporting tags.

    6. Support for Expressroute and S2S VPN combination from multiple sites to one vNet

      Virtual Networks should be able to peer with on premise and other virtual networks using combination of IPsec VPN tunnels and expressroute type options.

      As expressroute is limited by Network and/or Exchange providers regional ability, it limits enterprises to cater for business needs of customers in those regions.
