Description John Browning 2016-01-20 13:03:08 EST
Description of problem:
When working with Provider networks in OpenStack, most use cases require the setting --router:external during creation.
It appears the current resource OS::Neutron::ProviderNet does not support setting this option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a heat template that creates a provider network.
2.Execute a neutron net-show <uuid of provider network>
3.View the output where External Router is false

Actual results:
Default external router setting is false

Expected results:
Have the ability to set this to true

Looked ahead to RHOS8 and upstream and neither support an external router parameter.
Comment 3 Zane Bitter 2016-02-17 16:30:06 EST
This is now merged upstream in Mitaka; it's the kind of new feature that we would not normally backport to Liberty (OSP8). Is there an urgent requirement for this, or should we retarget to OSP9?
