Last Updated:Feb 22, 2024

Applies for an Express Connect circuit.

Operation description

You can apply for a dedicated Express Connect circuit for yourself or create a hosted connection for a tenant. After your application is approved, the Express Connect circuit changes to the Initial state. You can contact the connectivity provider to start construction.

When you call this operation, take note of the following limits:

  • If your Alibaba Cloud account has more than five Express Connect circuits that are not in the Enabled state, you cannot apply for another Express Connect circuit.
  • If your Alibaba Cloud account has an Express Connect circuit with overdue payments, you cannot apply for another Express Connect circuit.

Debugging

OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer.
