Creating a Custom Route Table


A VPC automatically comes with a default route table. If your default route table cannot meet your service requirements, you can create a custom route table.

Notes and Constraints

By default, you do not have a quota for creating custom route tables. To create custom route tables, you need to apply for a quota increase first. For details, see How Do I Apply for a Higher Quota?


  1. Go to the route table list page.
  2. In the upper right corner, click Create Route Table. On the displayed page, configure parameters as prompted.
    Table 1 Parameter descriptions



    Example Value


    (Mandatory) The name of the route table. The name:
    • Can contain 1 to 64 characters.
    • Can contain letters, digits, underscores (_), hyphens (-), and periods (.).



    (Mandatory) The VPC that the route table belongs to. The route table can be associated with the subnets in this VPC.



    (Optional) Supplementary information about the route table.

    The description can contain a maximum of 255 characters and cannot contain angle brackets (< or >).


    Route Settings

    (Optional) The route information. You can add a route when creating the route table or after the route table is created. For details, see Adding Routes to a Route Table.

    You can click to add more routes.


  3. Click OK.

    A message is displayed. You can determine whether to associate the route table with subnets immediately as prompted. If you want to associate immediately, perform the following operations:

    1. Click Associate Subnet. The route table details page is displayed.
    2. Click Associate Subnet and select the target subnets to be associated.
    3. Click OK.
