Creating Azure VNET Peering Connection

The Aviatrix Controller integrates native Azure Virtual network peering to create a peering connection between two VNets to enable traffic flow between the VNets privately.

  • A peering connection can be created between VNets within the same Azure region (virtual network peering) or across Azure regions (global virtual network peering), where it is available.

  • A peering connection can be created between VNets in the same Azure subscription or in different Azure subscriptions, as long as both subscriptions are onboarded in Aviatrix Controller.

To create an Azure VNet Peering connection:

  1. In CoPilot, navigate to Connectivity > Native Peering tab, and click + Native Peering.

  2. For Cloud type, select Azure, you can use the dropdown menu to select Global, GovCloud, or China.

  3. From the VPC/VNet 1 dropdown menu, select the VNet to peer. The VNet list shows the Region and VNet ID for each VNet.

  4. From the VPC/VNet 2 dropdown menu, select another VNet to peer with.

  5. Click Save.

The new Azure VNet Peering connection appears in the table. The name for the peering connection is auto-generated by CoPilot. You can use the filter to display additional connection settings.

You can click the peering connection name to display VNet details. The details for VNet 1 and VNet 2 are shown in their respective columns.

To delete a peering connection, you can click the Delete icon on the details page or on the Native Peering page to the right of the peering connection name.
