Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) supports route withdrawal. You can withdraw routes that have been advertised to a CEN instance. After a route is withdrawn from CEN, other network instances attached to the CEN instance cannot learn this route. After you advertise a custom route to a CEN instance, if you delete the route from the virtual private cloud (VPC) or victual border router (VBR), the route is also deleted from the CEN instance.

Background information

The following table describes the routes that can be withdrawn from CEN instances.
Note The CEN console allows you to withdraw only VPC routes. To withdraw VBR routes, you must call the WithdrawPublishedRouteEntries API operation. For more information, see WithdrawPublishedRouteEntries.
