Make it possible to associate multiple ips with a port via allowed-address-pairs via horizon

Solution In Progress - Updated -

Environment

  • Red Hat Open Stack

Issue

  • By default neutron allows communication to only a single mac -> ip for a port. It's possible to allow communication to multiple ip for a port via allowed-address-pair.

  • This request is to make this possible via Horizon for an instance. Like we associate a floating ip for an instance, there should be a way to associate more private ips to an nic which internally will translate to a neutron port-update with --allowed-address-pairs.

Resolution

  • Raised RFE(Request for Feature Enhancement) with engineering team. They are working on it. To get current status of RFE, contact Red Hat Support.
