Networking API v2.0

Networking API v2.0

General API Overview

API guide

This section introduces readers to OpenStack Networking (v2) API, providers guidelines on how to use it, and describes common features available to users throughout all Networking APIs.

General information

The Networking API v2.0 is a ReSTful HTTP service that uses all aspects of the HTTP protocol including methods, URIs, media types, response codes, and so on. Providers can use existing features of the protocol including caching, persistent connections, and content compression. For example, providers who employ a caching layer can respond with a 203 code instead of a 200 code when a request is served from the cache. Additionally, providers can offer support for conditional GET requests by using ETags, or they may send a redirect in response to a GET request. Create clients so that these differences are accounted for.

Authentication and authorization

The Networking API v2.0 uses the OpenStack Identity service as the default authentication service. When Keystone is enabled, users that submit requests to the OpenStack Networking service must provide an authentication token in X-Auth-Token request header. You obtain the token by authenticating to the Keystone endpoint.

When Keystone is enabled, the project_id attribute is not required in create requests because the project ID is derived from the authentication token.

NOTE: Currently the Networking API accepts the deprecated tenant_id attribute for the project ID for backward compatibility.

The default authorization settings allow only administrative users to create resources on behalf of a different project.

OpenStack Networking uses information received from Keystone to authorize user requests. OpenStack Networking handles the following types of authorization policies:

  • Operation-based policies specify access criteria for specific operations, possibly with fine-grained control over specific attributes.
  • Resource-based policies access a specific resource. Permissions might or might not be granted depending on the permissions configured for the resource. Currently available for only the network resource.

The actual authorization policies enforced in OpenStack Networking might vary from deployment to deployment.

Request and response formats

The Networking API v2.0 supports JSON data serialization request and response formats only.

Request format

The Networking API v2.0 only accepts requests with the JSON data serialization format. The Content-Type header is ignored.

Tenant and project attributes in requests

Starting with the Newton release of the Networking service, the Networking API accepts the project_id attribute in addition to the tenant_id attribute in requests. The tenant_id attribute is accepted for backward compatibility. If both the project_id and the tenant_id attribute are provided in the same request, their values must be identical.

To determine whether a Networking API v2.0 endpoint supports the project_id attribute in requests, check that the project-id API extension is enabled (see Extensions).

Response format

The Networking API v2.0 always responds with the JSON data serialization format. The Accept header is ignored.

Query extension

A .json extension can be added to the request URI. For example, the .json extension in the following requests are equivalent:

  • GET publicURL/networks
  • GET publicURL/networks.json

Tenant and project attributes in responses

Starting with the Newton release of the Networking service, the Networking API returns a project_id attribute in responses, while still returning a tenant_id attribute for backward compatibility. The values will always be identical.

To determine whether a Networking API v2.0 endpoint returns the project_id attribute in responses, check that the project-id API extension is enabled (see Extensions).

Filtering and column selection

The Networking API v2.0 supports filtering based on all top level attributes of a resource. Filters are applicable to all list requests.

For example, the following request returns all networks named foobar:

GET /v2.0/networks?name=foobar

When you specify multiple filters, the Networking API v2.0 returns only objects that meet all filtering criteria. The operation applies an AND condition among the filters.

Note

OpenStack Networking does not offer an OR mechanism for filters.

Alternatively, you can issue a distinct request for each filter and build a response set from the received responses on the client-side.

By default, OpenStack Networking returns all attributes for any show or list call. The Networking API v2.0 has a mechanism to limit the set of attributes returned. For example, return id.

You can use the fields query parameter to control the attributes returned from the Networking API v2.0.

For example, the following request returns only id and name for each network:

GET /v2.0/networks.json?fields=id&fields=name

Synchronous versus asynchronous plug-in behavior

The Networking API v2.0 presents a logical model of network connectivity consisting of networks, ports, and subnets. It is up to the OpenStack Networking plug-in to communicate with the underlying infrastructure to ensure packet forwarding is consistent with the logical model. A plug-in might perform these operations asynchronously.

When an API client modifies the logical model by issuing an HTTP POST, PUT, or DELETE request, the API call might return before the plug-in modifies underlying virtual and physical switching devices. However, an API client is guaranteed that all subsequent API calls properly reflect the changed logical model.

For example, if a client issues an HTTP PUT request to set the attachment for a port, there is no guarantee that packets sent by the interface named in the attachment are forwarded immediately when the HTTP call returns. However, it is guaranteed that a subsequent HTTP GET request to view the attachment on that port returns the new attachment value.

You can use the status attribute with the network and port resources to determine whether the OpenStack Networking plug-in has successfully completed the configuration of the resource.

Bulk-create

The Networking API v2.0 enables you to create several objects of the same type in the same API request. Bulk create operations use exactly the same API syntax as single create operations except that you specify a list of objects rather than a single object in the request body.

Bulk operations are always performed atomically, meaning that either all or none of the objects in the request body are created. If a particular plug-in does not support atomic operations, the Networking API v2.0 emulates the atomic behavior so that users can expect the same behavior regardless of the particular plug-in running in the background.

OpenStack Networking might be deployed without support for bulk operations and when the client attempts a bulk create operation, a 400 Bad request error is returned.

Sorting

You can use the sort_key and sort_dir parameters to sort the results of list operations. Currently sorting does not work with extended attributes of resource. The sort_key and sort_dir can be repeated, and the number of sort_key and sort_dir provided must be same. The sort_dir parameter indicates in which direction to sort. Acceptable values are asc (ascending) and desc (descending).

Sorting is optional feature of OpenStack Networking API, and it might be disabled. If sorting is disabled, the sorting parameters are ignored.

If a particular plug-in does not support sorting operations and sorting is enabled, the Networking API v2.0 emulates the sorting behavior so that users can expect the same behavior regardless of the particular plug-in that runs in the background.

To determine if sorting is supported, a user can check whether the ‘sorting’ extension API is available.

Extensions

The Networking API v2.0 is extensible.

The purpose of Networking API v2.0 extensions is to:

  • Introduce new features in the API without requiring a version change.
  • Introduce vendor-specific niche functionality.
  • Act as a proving ground for experimental functionalities that might be included in a future version of the API.

To programmatically determine which extensions are available, issue a GET request on the v2.0/extensions URI.

To query extensions individually by unique alias, issue a GET request on the /v2.0/extensions/*alias_name* URI. Use this method to easily determine if an extension is available. If the extension is not available, a 404 Not Found response is returned.

You can extend existing core API resources with new actions or extra attributes. Also, you can add new resources as extensions. Extensions usually have tags that prevent conflicts with other extensions that define attributes or resources with the same names, and with core resources and attributes. Because an extension might not be supported by all plug-ins, the availability of an extension varies with deployments and the specific plug-in in use.

Faults

The Networking API v2.0 returns an error response if a failure occurs while processing a request. OpenStack Networking uses only standard HTTP error codes. 4nn errors indicate problems in the particular request being sent from the client.

Error Description
400 Bad request Malformed request URI or body requested admin state invalid Invalid values entered Bulk operations disallowed Validation failed Method not allowed for request body (such as trying to update attributes that can be specified at create-time only)
404 Not Found Non existent URI Resource not found
409 Conflict Port configured on network IP allocated on subnet Conflicting IP allocation pools for subnet
500 Internal server error Internal OpenStack Networking error
503 Service unavailable Failure in Mac address generation

Users submitting requests to the Networking API v2.0 might also receive the following errors:

  • 401 Unauthorized - If invalid credentials are provided.
  • 403 Forbidden - If the user cannot access a specific resource or perform the requested operation.

Layer 2 Networking

Networks

Lists, shows details for, creates, updates, and deletes networks.

provider extended attributes

The provider extension allows administrative users to define a physical binding of a logical network. This extension provides three additional attributes: provider:network_type, provider:physical_network and provider:segmentation_id. The validation rules for these attributes vary across provider:network_type. For example, vlan and flat network types require provider:physical_network attribute, but vxlan network type does not.

Most Networking plug-ins and drivers do not support updating any provider related attributes.

multiple provider extension

The multi-provider extension allows administrative users to define multiple physical bindings for a logical network.

To define multiple physical bindings for a network, include a segments list in the request body of network creation request. Each element in the segments list has the same structure as the provider network attributes. These attributes are provider:network_type, provider:physical_network, and provider:segmentation_id. The same validation rules are applied to each element in the segments list.

Note that you cannot use the provider extension and the multiple provider extension for a single logical network.

VLAN transparency extension

The vlan-transparent extension enables plug-ins that support VLAN transparency to deliver VLAN transparent trunk networks. This extension introduces vlan_transparent attribute to control a VLAN transparecy of the network. If the service does not support VLAN transparency and a user requests a VLAN transparent network, the plug-in refuses to create one and returns an appropriate error to the user.

GET
/v2.0/networks/{network_id}

Show network details

Shows details for a network.

Use the fields query parameter to control which fields are returned in the response body. For information, see Filtering and Column Selection.

Normal response codes: 200

Error response codes: 401, 404

Request

Name In Type Description
network_id path string The ID of the network.
fields (Optional) query string The fields that you want the server to return. If no fields query parameter is specified, the networking API returns all attributes allowed by the policy settings. By using fields parameter, the API returns only the requested set of attributes. fields parameter can be specified multiple times. For example, if you specify fields=id&fields=name in the request URL, only id and name attributes will be returned.

Response Parameters

Name In Type Description
network body object A network object.
admin_state_up body boolean The administrative state of the network, which is up (true) or down (false).
availability_zone_hints body array The availability zone candidate for the network.
availability_zones body array The availability zone for the network.
created_at body string Time at which the resource has been created (in UTC ISO8601 format).
id body string The ID of the network.
mtu body integer The maximum transmission unit (MTU) value to address fragmentation. Minimum value is 68 for IPv4, and 1280 for IPv6.
name body string Human-readable name of the network.
port_security_enabled body boolean The port security status of the network. Valid values are enabled (true) and disabled (false). This value is used as the default value of port_security_enabled field of a newly created port.
project_id body string The ID of the project.
provider:network_type body string The type of physical network that this network is mapped to. For example, flat, vlan, vxlan, or gre. Valid values depend on a networking back-end.
provider:physical_network body string The physical network where this network is implemented.
provider:segmentation_id body integer The ID of the isolated segment on the physical network. The network_type attribute defines the segmentation model. For example, if the network_type value is vlan, this ID is a vlan identifier. If the network_type value is gre, this ID is a gre key.
qos_policy_id body string The ID of the QoS policy.
router:external body boolean Indicates whether this network can provide floating IPs via a router.
segments body array A list of provider segment objects.
shared body boolean Indicates whether this network is shared across all tenants. By default, only administrative users can change this value.
status body string The network status. Values are ACTIVE, DOWN, BUILD or ERROR.
subnets body array The associated subnets.

Ports

Lists, shows details for, creates, updates, and deletes ports.

Port binding extended attributes

The port binding extension (binding) allows administrative users to specify and retrieve physical binding information of ports. The extension defines several attributes whose names have a prefix binding: including binding:host_id, binding:vnic_type, binding:vif_type, binding:vif_details, and binding:profile.


GET
/v2.0/ports/{port_id}

Show port details

Shows details for a port.

Use the fields query parameter to control which fields are returned in the response body. For information, see Filtering and Column Selection.

Normal response codes: 200

Error response codes: 401, 404

Request

Name In Type Description
port_id path string The ID of the port.
fields (Optional) query string The fields that you want the server to return. If no fields query parameter is specified, the networking API returns all attributes allowed by the policy settings. By using fields parameter, the API returns only the requested set of attributes. fields parameter can be specified multiple times. For example, if you specify fields=id&fields=name in the request URL, only id and name attributes will be returned.

Response Parameters

Name In Type Description
port body object A port object.
admin_state_up body boolean The administrative state of the resource, which is up (true) or down (false).
allowed_address_pairs body array A set of zero or more allowed address pairs. An address pair consists of an IP address range and MAC address with the format of {"ip_address": "<IP address or CIDR>", "mac_address": "<MAC address>"}. A server connected to the port can send a packet with source address which matches one of the specified allowed address pairs.
binding:host_id body string The ID of the host where the port resides.
binding:profile body string A dictionary that enables the application running on the specific host to pass and receive vif port information specific to the networking back-end. The networking API does not define a specific format of this field.
binding:vif_details body object A dictionary which contains additional information on the port. Currently the following fields are defined: port_filter and ovs_hybrid_plug. port_filter is a boolean indicating the networking service provides port filtering features such as security group and/or anti MAC/IP spoofing. ovs_hybrid_plug is a boolean used to inform an API consumer like nova that the hybrid plugging strategy for OVS should be used.
binding:vif_type body string The type of which mechanism is used for the port. An API consumer like nova can use this to determine an appropriate way to attach a device (for example an interface of a virtual server) to the port. Available values currently defined includes ovs, bridge, macvtap, hw_veb, hostdev_physical, vhostuser, distributed and other. There are also special values: unbound and binding_failed. unbound means the port is not bound to a networking back-end. binding_failed means an error that the port failed to be bound to a networking back-end.
binding:vnic_type body string The type of vNIC which this port should be attached to. This is used to determine which mechanism driver(s) to be used to bind the port. The valid values are normal, macvtap, direct, baremetal, and direct-physical. What type of vNIC is actually available depends on deployments.
created_at body string Time at which port has been created.
description body string A human-readable description for the resource.
device_id body string The ID of the device that uses this port. For example, a server instance or a logical router.
device_owner body string The entity type that uses this port. For example, compute:nova (server instance), network:dhcp (DHCP agent) or network:router_interface (router interface).
extra_dhcp_opts body array A set of zero or more extra DHCP option pairs. An option pair consists of an option value and name.
fixed_ips body array The IP addresses for the port. If the port has multiple IP addresses, this field has multiple entries. Each entry consists of IP address (ip_address) and the subnet ID from which the IP address is assigned (subnet_id).
id body string The ID of the resource.
mac_address body string The MAC address of the port.
name body string Human-readable name of the resource.
network_id body string The ID of the attached network.
port_security_enabled body boolean The port security status. A valid value is enabled (true) or disabled (false). If port security is enabled for the port, security group rules and anti-spoofing rules are applied to the traffic on the port. If disabled, no such rules are applied.
project_id body string The ID of the project.
security_groups body array The IDs of security groups applied to the port.
status body string The port status. Values are ACTIVE, DOWN, BUILD and ERROR.
tenant_id body string The ID of the project.
updated_at body string Time at which port has been updated.

PUT
/v2.0/ports/{port_id}

Update port

Updates a port.

You can update information for a port, such as its symbolic name and associated IPs. When you update IPs for a port, any previously associated IPs are removed, returned to the respective subnet allocation pools, and replaced by the IPs in the request body. Therefore, this operation replaces the fixed_ip attribute when you specify it in the request body. If the updated IP addresses are not valid or are already in use, the operation fails and the existing IP addresses are not removed from the port.

When you update security groups for a port and the operation succeeds, any associated security groups are removed and replaced by the security groups in the request body. Therefore, this operation replaces the security_groups attribute when you specify it in the request body. If the security groups are not valid, the operation fails and the existing security groups are not removed from the port.

Response Parameters

Name In Type Description
port body object A port object.
admin_state_up body boolean The administrative state of the resource, which is up (true) or down (false).
allowed_address_pairs body array A set of zero or more allowed address pairs. An address pair consists of an IP address range and MAC address with the format of {"ip_address": "<IP address or CIDR>", "mac_address": "<MAC address>"}. A server connected to the port can send a packet with source address which matches one of the specified allowed address pairs.
binding:host_id body string The ID of the host where the port resides.
binding:profile body string A dictionary that enables the application running on the specific host to pass and receive vif port information specific to the networking back-end. The networking API does not define a specific format of this field.
binding:vif_details body object A dictionary which contains additional information on the port. Currently the following fields are defined: port_filter and ovs_hybrid_plug. port_filter is a boolean indicating the networking service provides port filtering features such as security group and/or anti MAC/IP spoofing. ovs_hybrid_plug is a boolean used to inform an API consumer like nova that the hybrid plugging strategy for OVS should be used.
binding:vif_type body string The type of which mechanism is used for the port. An API consumer like nova can use this to determine an appropriate way to attach a device (for example an interface of a virtual server) to the port. Available values currently defined includes ovs, bridge, macvtap, hw_veb, hostdev_physical, vhostuser, distributed and other. There are also special values: unbound and binding_failed. unbound means the port is not bound to a networking back-end. binding_failed means an error that the port failed to be bound to a networking back-end.
binding:vnic_type body string The type of vNIC which this port should be attached to. This is used to determine which mechanism driver(s) to be used to bind the port. The valid values are normal, macvtap, direct, baremetal, and direct-physical. What type of vNIC is actually available depends on deployments.
created_at body string Time at which port has been created.
description body string A human-readable description for the resource.
device_id body string The ID of the device that uses this port. For example, a server instance or a logical router.
device_owner body string The entity type that uses this port. For example, compute:nova (server instance), network:dhcp (DHCP agent) or network:router_interface (router interface).
extra_dhcp_opts body array A set of zero or more extra DHCP option pairs. An option pair consists of an option value and name.
fixed_ips body array The IP addresses for the port. If the port has multiple IP addresses, this field has multiple entries. Each entry consists of IP address (ip_address) and the subnet ID from which the IP address is assigned (subnet_id).
id body string The ID of the resource.
mac_address body string The MAC address of the port.
name body string Human-readable name of the resource.
network_id body string The ID of the attached network.
port_security_enabled body boolean The port security status. A valid value is enabled (true) or disabled (false). If port security is enabled for the port, security group rules and anti-spoofing rules are applied to the traffic on the port. If disabled, no such rules are applied.
project_id body string The ID of the project.
security_groups body array The IDs of security groups applied to the port.
status body string The port status. Values are ACTIVE, DOWN, BUILD and ERROR.
tenant_id body string The ID of the project.
updated_at body string Time at which port has been updated.

Request

Name In Type Description
port body object A port object.
admin_state_up (Optional) body boolean The administrative state of the resource, which is up (true) or down (false). Default is true.
allowed_address_pairs (Optional) body array A set of zero or more allowed address pairs. An address pair consists of an IP address range and MAC address with the format of {"ip_address": "<IP address or CIDR>", "mac_address": "<MAC address>"}. A server connected to the port can send a packet with source address which matches one of the specified allowed address pairs. The default is an empty list. For each address pair, ip_address is required and IP address or CIDR can be specified. mac_address is optional and if unspecified the MAC address of the port is used as default.
binding:host_id (Optional) body string The ID of the host where the port resides. The default is an empty string.
binding:profile (Optional) body string A dictionary that enables the application running on the specific host to pass and receive vif port information specific to the networking back-end. The networking API does not define a specific format of this field. The default is an empty dictionary.
binding:vnic_type (Optional) body string The type of vNIC which this port should be attached to. This is used to determine which mechanism driver(s) to be used to bind the port. The valid values are normal, macvtap, direct, baremetal, and direct-physical. What type of vNIC is actually available depends on deployments. The default is normal.
description (Optional) body string A human-readable description for the resource. Default is an empty string.
device_id (Optional) body string The ID of the device that uses this port. For example, a server instance or a logical router.
device_owner (Optional) body string The entity type that uses this port. For example, compute:nova (server instance), network:dhcp (DHCP agent) or network:router_interface (router interface).
extra_dhcp_opts (Optional) body array A set of zero or more extra DHCP option pairs. An option pair consists of an option value and name.
fixed_ips (Optional) body array

The IP addresses for the port. If you would like to assign multiple IP addresses for the port, specify multiple entries in this field. Each entry consists of IP address (ip_address) and the subnet ID from which the IP address is assigned (subnet_id).

  • If you specify both a subnet ID and an IP address, OpenStack Networking tries to allocate the IP address on that subnet to the port.
  • If you specify only a subnet ID, OpenStack Networking allocates an available IP from that subnet to the port.
  • If you specify only an IP address, OpenStack Networking tries to allocate the IP address if the address is a valid IP for any of the subnets on the specified network.
mac_address (Optional) body string The MAC address of the port. If unspecified, a MAC address is automatically generated.
name (Optional) body string Human-readable name of the resource. Default is an empty string.
network_id body string The ID of the attached network.
port_security_enabled (Optional) body boolean The port security status. A valid value is enabled (true) or disabled (false). If port security is enabled for the port, security group rules and anti-spoofing rules are applied to the traffic on the port. If disabled, no such rules are applied.
project_id (Optional) body string The ID of the project that owns the resource. Only administrative users can specify a project ID other than their own. You cannot change this value through authorization policies.
security_groups (Optional) body array The IDs of security groups applied to the port.
tenant_id (Optional) body string The ID of the project that owns the resource. Only administrative users can specify a project ID other than their own. You cannot change this value through authorization policies.

An address pair consists of an IP address range and MAC address with the format of {"ip_address": "<IP address or CIDR>", "mac_address": "<MAC address>"}. A server connected to the port can send a packet with source address which matches one of the specified allowed address pairs.
binding:host_id body string The ID of the host where the port resides.
binding:profile body string A dictionary that enables the application running on the specific host to pass and receive vif port information specific to the networking back-end. The networking API does not define a specific format of this field.
binding:vif_details body object A dictionary which contains additional information on the port. Currently the following fields are defined: port_filter and ovs_hybrid_plug. port_filter is a boolean indicating the networking service provides port filtering features such as security group and/or anti MAC/IP spoofing. ovs_hybrid_plug is a boolean used to inform an API consumer like nova that the hybrid plugging strategy for OVS should be used.
binding:vif_type body string The type of which mechanism is used for the port. An API consumer like nova can use this to determine an appropriate way to attach a device (for example an interface of a virtual server) to the port. Available values currently defined includes ovs, bridge, macvtap, hw_veb, hostdev_physical, vhostuser, distributed and other. There are also special values: unbound and binding_failed. unbound means the port is not bound to a networking back-end. binding_failed means an error that the port failed to be bound to a networking back-end.
binding:vnic_type body string The type of vNIC which this port should be attached to. This is used to determine which mechanism driver(s) to be used to bind the port. The valid values are normal, macvtap, direct, baremetal, and direct-physical. What type of vNIC is actually available depends on deployments.
created_at body string Time at which port has been created.
description body string A human-readable description for the resource.
device_id body string The ID of the device that uses this port. For example, a server instance or a logical router.
device_owner body string The entity type that uses this port. For example, compute:nova (server instance), network:dhcp (DHCP agent) or network:router_interface (router interface).
extra_dhcp_opts body array A set of zero or more extra DHCP option pairs. An option pair consists of an option value and name.
fixed_ips body array The IP addresses for the port. If the port has multiple IP addresses, this field has multiple entries. Each entry consists of IP address (ip_address) and the subnet ID from which the IP address is assigned (subnet_id).
id body string The ID of the resource.
mac_address body string The MAC address of the port.
name body string Human-readable name of the resource.
network_id body string The ID of the attached network.
port_security_enabled body boolean The port security status. A valid value is enabled (true) or disabled (false). If port security is enabled for the port, security group rules and anti-spoofing rules are applied to the traffic on the port. If disabled, no such rules are applied.
project_id body string The ID of the project.
security_groups body array The IDs of security groups applied to the port.
status body string The port status. Values are ACTIVE, DOWN, BUILD and ERROR.

Trunk networking

The trunk extension can be used to multiplex packets coming from and going to multiple neutron logical networks using a single neutron logical port. A trunk is modeled in neutron as a collection of neutron logical ports. One port, called parent port, must be associated to a trunk and it is the port to be used to connect instances with neutron. A sequence of subports (or sub_ports) each typically belonging to distinct neutron networks, is also associated to a trunk, and each subport may have a segmentation type and ID used to mux/demux the traffic coming in and out of the parent port.

In more details, the extension introduces the following resources:

  • trunk. A top level logical entity to model the group of neutron logical networks whose traffic flows through the trunk.
  • sub_port. An association to a neutron logical port with attributes segmentation_id and segmentation_type.

POST
/v2.0/floatingips

Create floating IP

Creates a floating IP, and, if you specify port information, associates the floating IP with an internal port.

To associate the floating IP with an internal port, specify the port ID attribute in the request body. If you do not specify a port ID in the request, you can issue a PUT request instead of a POST request.

Default policy settings enable only administrative users to set floating IP addresses and some non-administrative users might require a floating IP address. If you do not specify a floating IP address in the request, the operation automatically allocates one.

By default, this operation associates the floating IP address with a single fixed IP address that is configured on an OpenStack Networking port. If a port has multiple IP addresses, you must specify the fixed_ip_address attribute in the request body to associate a fixed IP address with the floating IP address.

You can create floating IPs on only external networks. When you create a floating IP, you must specify the ID of the network on which you want to create the floating IP. Alternatively, you can create a floating IP on a subnet in the external network, based on the costs and quality of that subnet.

You must configure an IP address with the internal OpenStack Networking port that is associated with the floating IP address.

The operation returns the Bad Request (400) response code for one of reasons:

  • The network is not external, such as router:external=False.
  • The internal OpenStack Networking port is not associated with the floating IP address.
  • The requested floating IP address does not fall in the subnet range for the external network.
  • The fixed IP address is not valid.

If the port ID is not valid, this operation returns 404 response code.

The operation returns the Conflict (409) response code for one of reasons:

  • The requested floating IP address is already in use.
  • The internal OpenStack Networking port and fixed IP address are already associated with another floating IP.

Normal response codes: 201

Error response codes: 400, 401, 404, 409

DELETE
/v2.0/routers/{router_id}

Delete router

Deletes a logical router and, if present, its external gateway interface.

This operation fails if the router has attached interfaces. Use the remove router interface operation to remove all router interfaces before you delete the router.

router_id path string The ID of the router.

Response

There is no body content for the response of a successful DELETE request.

PUT
/v2.0/routers/{router_id}/add_router_interface

Add interface to router

Adds an internal interface to a logical router. This means a specified subnet is attached to a router as an internal router interface.

Specify the ID of a subnet or port in the request body:

  • Subnet ID. The gateway IP address for the subnet is used as an IP address of the created router interface.
  • Port ID. The IP address associated with the port is used as an IP address of the created router interface.

When you specify an IPv6 subnet, this operation adds the subnet to an existing internal port with same network ID, on the router. If a port with the same network ID does not exist, this operation creates a port on the router for that subnet.

The limitation of one IPv4 subnet per router port remains, though a port can contain any number of IPv6 subnets that belong to the same network ID.

When you use the port-create command to add a port and then call router-interface-add with this port ID, this operation adds the port to the router if the following conditions are met:

  • The port has no more than one IPv4 subnet.
  • The IPv6 subnets, if any, on the port do not have same network ID as the network ID of IPv6 subnets on any other ports.

If you specify both subnet ID and port ID, this operation returns the Bad Request (400) response code.

If the port is already in use, this operation returns the Conflict (409) response code.

This operation returns a port ID that is either:

  • The same ID that is passed in the request body when a port is specified.
  • The ID of a port that this operation creates to attach the subnet to the router.

After you run this operation, the operation sets:

  • The device_id attribute of this port to the router ID
  • The device_owner attribute to network:router_interface

PUT
/v2.0/routers/{router_id}/remove_router_interface

Remove interface from router

Deletes an internal interface from a logical router.

This operation deletes an internal router interface, which detaches a subnet from the router. If this subnet ID is the last subnet on the port, this operation deletes the port itself. You must specify either a subnet ID or port ID in the request body; the operation uses this value to identify which router interface to deletes.

You can also specify both a subnet ID and port ID. If you specify both IDs, the subnet ID must correspond to the subnet ID of the first IP address on the port. Otherwise, this operation returns the Conflict (409) response code with information about the affected router and interface.

If you try to delete the router interface for subnets that are used by one or more routes, this operation returns the Conflict (409) response. In this case, you first need to delete such routes from the router.

If the router or the subnet and port do not exist or are not visible to you, this operation returns the Not Found (404) response code. As a consequence of this operation, the operation removes the port connecting the router with the subnet from the subnet for the network.

Create subnet

Creates a subnet on a network.

OpenStack Networking does not try to derive the correct IP version from the CIDR. If you do not specify the gateway_ip attribute, OpenStack Networking allocates an address from the CIDR for the gateway for the subnet.

To specify a subnet without a gateway, set the gateway_ip attribute to null in the request body. If you do not specify the allocation_pools attribute, OpenStack Networking automatically allocates pools for covering all IP addresses in the CIDR, excluding the address reserved for the subnet gateway. Otherwise, you can explicitly specify allocation pools as shown in the following example.

When you specify both the allocation_pools and gateway_ip attributes, you must ensure that the gateway IP does not overlap with the allocation pools; otherwise, the call returns the Conflict (409) response code.

A subnet can have one or more name servers and host routes. Hosts in this subnet use the name servers. Devices with IP addresses from this subnet, not including the local subnet route, use the host routes.

Specify the ipv6_ra_mode and ipv6_address_mode attributes to create subnets that support IPv6 configurations, such as stateless address autoconfiguration (SLAAC), DHCPv6 stateful, and DHCPv6 stateless configurations.

A subnet can optionally be associated with a network segment when it is created by specifying the segment_id of a valid segment on the specified network. A network with subnets associated in this way is called a routed network. On any given network, all of the subnets must be associated with segments or none of them can be. Neutron enforces this invariant. Currently, routed networks are only supported for provider networks.

Security

FWaaS v1.0 (DEPRECATED) (fw, firewalls, firewall_policies, firewall_rules)

Use the Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) v1.0 extension to deploy firewalls to protect your networks.

The FWaaS extension enables you to:

  • Apply firewall rules on traffic entering and leaving project networks.
  • Apply TCP, UDP, ICMP, or protocol-agnostic rules.
  • Create and share firewall policies that hold an ordered collection of the firewall rules.
  • Audit firewall rules and policies.

This extension introduces these resources:

  • firewall. A logical firewall resource that a project can instantiate and manage. A firewall can have one firewall policy.
  • firewall_policy. An ordered collection of firewall rules. You can share a firewall policy across projects. You can include a firewall policy as part of an audit workflow so that an authorized relevant entity can audit the firewall policy. This entity can differ from the user who created, or the projects that use, the firewall policy.
  • firewall_rule. A collection of attributes, such as ports and IP addresses. These attributes define match criteria and an action to take, such as allow or deny, on matched data traffic.
GET
/v2.0/fw/firewall_policies

List firewall policies

Lists all firewall policies.

Use the fields query parameter to control which fields are returned in the response body. Additionally, you can filter results by using query string parameters. For information, see Filtering and Column Selection.

Normal response codes: 200

Error response codes: 401, 403

Request

Name In Type Description
fields (Optional) query string The fields that you want the server to return. If no fields query parameter is specified, the networking API returns all attributes allowed by the policy settings. By using fields parameter, the API returns only the requested set of attributes. fields parameter can be specified multiple times. For example, if you specify fields=id&fields=name in the request URL, only id and name attributes will be returned.

Response Parameters

Name In Type Description
tenant_id body string The ID of the project.
firewall_policies body array A list of firewall_policy objects.
audited body boolean Each time that the firewall policy or its associated rules are changed, the API sets this attribute to false. To audit the policy, explicitly set this attribute to true.
description body string A human-readable description for the resource.
firewall_rules body array A list of the IDs for firewall rule associated with the firewall policy.
id body string The ID of the policy that is associated with the firewall.
name body string Human-readable name of the resource.
shared body boolean Admin-only. Indicates whether this network is shared across all tenants.
project_id body string The ID of the project.

FWaaS v2.0 (CURRENT) (fwaas, firewall_groups, firewall_policies, firewall_rules)

Use the Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) v2.0 extension to deploy firewall groups to protect your networks.

The FWaaS extension enables you to:

  • Apply firewall rules on traffic entering and leaving project networks.
  • Apply TCP, UDP, ICMP, or protocol-agnostic rules.
  • Create and share firewall policies that hold an ordered collection of firewall rules.
  • Audit firewall rules and policies.

This extension introduces the following resources:

  • firewall_group. A logical firewall resource that a project can create and manage. A firewall group can have a firewall policy for ingress traffic and/or a firewall policy for egress traffic.
  • firewall_policy. An ordered collection of firewall rules. You can share a firewall policy across projects. You can include a firewall policy as part of an audit workflow so that an authorized relevant entity can audit the firewall policy. This entity can differ from the user who created, or the projects that use, the firewall policy.
  • firewall_rule. A collection of attributes, such as source and destination ports, source and destination IP addresses, protocol, and IP version. These attributes define match criteria and an action to take, such as allow, reject, or deny, on matched data traffic.
GET
/v2.0/fwaas/firewall_groups

List firewall groups

VPNaaS 2.0 (UNMAINTAINED) (vpn, vpnservices, ikepolicies, ipsecpolicies, endpoint-groups, ipsec-site-connections)

The Virtual-Private-Network-as-a-Service (VPNaaS) extension enables OpenStack projects to extend private networks across the public telecommunication infrastructure.

This initial implementation of the VPNaaS extension provides:

  • Site-to-site VPN that connects two private networks.
  • Multiple VPN connections per project.
  • IKEv1 policy support with 3des, aes-128, aes-256, or aes-192 encryption.
  • IPSec policy support with 3des, aes-128, aes-192, or aes-256 encryption, sha1 authentication, ESP, AH, or AH-ESP transform protocol, and tunnel or transport mode encapsulation.
  • Dead Peer Detection (DPD) with hold, clear, restart, disabled, or restart-by-peer actions.

This extension introduces these resources:

  • service. A parent object that associates VPN with a specific subnet and router.
  • ikepolicy. The Internet Key Exchange (IKE) policy that identifies the authentication and encryption algorithm to use during phase one and two negotiation of a VPN connection.
  • ipsecpolicy. The IP security policy that specifies the authentication and encryption algorithm and encapsulation mode to use for the established VPN connection.
  • ipsec-site-connection. Details for the site-to-site IPsec connection, including the peer CIDRs, MTU, authentication mode, peer address, DPD settings, and status.
  • endpoint-groups. Defines one or more endpoints of a specific type, and can be used to specify both local and peer endpoints for IPSec Connections.
