Horizon doesn't enable user to create network when nova network is used
Last modified: 2016-04-26 15:15:21 EDT
Description of problem:
User can't create nova network via horizon , while he can do it using nova CLI and horizon with Quantum
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect to horizon with only nova-network installed
2. try to create network
I can't reproduce this with openstack-django-horizon-2012.2.1 . Could you please report output the version of openstack-dashboard?
using RHEL 6.4
According to the docs, in Folsom, the administrator must use the "nova-manage create-network" command to create a network -> http://docs.openstack.org/folsom/openstack-compute/admin/content/configuring-networking-on-the-compute-node.html. It's not possible to create networks using the client libraries on the CLI (even as a keystone admin), therefore it's not possible to expose it in Horizon either.
It looks like APIs to do so were added later in Grizzly: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/apis-for-nova-manage, https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/tenant-networks. They appear to involve significant changes in Nova and novaclient.
Nova-network is on its way to being deprecated, perhaps as early as the Havana cycle:
I'm not sure if it makes sense to spend effort surfacing nova-network capabilities to the dashboard, when they will be removed soon.
