BGP sample configuration 3-1-1

[Traffic flow]

Outbound traffic on CPE
All outbound traffic will go out thru primary line(12.1.3.1) due to route-map shadow_inbound tag local-pref 80 on default route from bgp peer(12.1.4.2)
 
Inbound traffic  on CPE
All inbound traffic will come in thru primary line (12.1.3.1) due to route-map shadow_outbound tag metric 200 on announced IP route.
