API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Creates a new BGP peer on a specified virtual interface. The BGP peer cannot be in the same address family (IPv4/IPv6) of an existing BGP peer on the virtual interface.

You must create a BGP peer for the corresponding address family in order to access AWS resources that also use that address family.

When creating a IPv6 BGP peer, the Amazon address and customer address fields must be left blank. IPv6 addresses are automatically assigned from Amazon's pool of IPv6 addresses; you cannot specify custom IPv6 addresses.

For a public virtual interface, the Autonomous System Number (ASN) must be private or already whitelisted for the virtual interface.


For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to CreateBGPPeerAsync.
