Queens Series Release Notes

Queens Series Release Notes


New Features

  • Add ip-substring-filtering API extension. This extension provides the ability to filter ports with an IP address substring.

  • Updated fwaas API extension definition to include previously missing ability to specify remote firewall groups for ingress and egress traffic. When a firewall group rule specifies a remote group, for example an ingress rule in fwgA specifies a remote group of fwgB, that means only packets from fwgB could match this ingress rule.


  • Moving the leftover DVR related constants from neutron.common.constants. The constants L3_AGENT_MODE_DVR_NO_EXTERNAL and DVR_SNAT_BOUND are now available in neutron_lib.constants.

  • The publically consumed API’s from neutron.plugins.common.utils are now available in neutron_lib.plugins.utils.

  • The NetworkVlanRangeError and PhysicalNetworkNameError exception classes are now available in neutron_lib.exceptions.

  • The qos-rule-type-details extension’s API definition is now available in neutron_lib.api.definitions.qos_rule_type_details.

  • The revision-if-match extension’s API definition is now available in neutron_lib.api.definitions.revisionifmatch.

  • The router-service-type extension’s API definition is now available in neutron_lib.api.definitions.routerservicetype.

  • The segment extension’s API definition is now available in neutron_lib.api.definitions.segment.

  • The SHARED constant is now available in neutron_lib.constants.

  • The sorting extension’s API definition is now available in neutron_lib.api.definitions.sorting.

  • The public constants and get_topic_name function from neutron.common.topics are now available in neutron_lib.agent.topics.


New Features

  • Adds the IP-in-IP protocol under the name ipip to the list of protocols supported in security group rules.

  • A new PORT_BINDING resource definition has been added to neutron_lib.callbacks.resources, to enable the multiple port binding service plugin to notify the core plugin and other subscribers when create, update and delete operations are performed on a port binding.

  • A new abstract method ha_state_change has been added to L3AgentExtension.

  • The multi-provider extension’s API definition is available in neutron_lib.api.defintions.multiprovidernet.

  • Exceptions for the multi-provider extension can be found in neutron_lib.exceptions.multiprovidernet.

  • The validation type type:network_segments is now available for API attribute validation.

  • The neutron placement API client is now available as neutron_lib.clients.placement.

  • A new fixture for testing placement API calls has been added as neutron_lib.fixtures.PlacementAPIClientFixture.

  • The qos-default extension’s API definition is now available in neutron_lib.api.definitions.qos_default.

  • The rbac-policy callback resource now available as neutron_lib.callbacks.resources.RBAC_POLICY.

  • The service-type extension’s API definition is now available in neutron_lib.api.definitions.servicetype.

  • The vlan-transparent extension’s API definition is now available in neutron_lib.api.definitions.vlantransparent.

  • The get_vlan_transparent function from the vlan-transparent extension is available in neutron_lib.api.definitions.vlantransparent.

  • The subnet_onboard API definition now supports creating and updating subnets

  • All methods defined in APIExtensionDescriptor are now class methods. This allows consumers to call them without a reference to an actual extension object instance.

Bug Fixes

  • Bug 1738371 is fixed by comparing min port and max port in port range specification as integers instead of strings, during port range validation.

  • The get_extended_resources method of the APIExtensionDescriptor was updated to also include the underlying API definition’s SUB_RESOURCE_ATTRIBUTE_MAP in the returned dict. As a result, the update_attributes_map method now also includes the sub-resources if no extension_attrs_map is passed to it.


New Features

  • The bgpvpn-vni API extension adds the vni optional attribute to bgpvpn objects to control the VXLAN VNI when VXLAN encapsulation is used.

  • The flavors API definition is now available in neutron_lib.api.definitions.flavors.

  • A new type:service_plugin_type validator has been added that allows a service plugin to be validated at runtime by checking the neutron_lib.plugins.directory.

  • Exceptions related to the flavor API have been added to neutron_lib.exceptions.flavors except for InvalidFlavorServiceType which is now a generic InvalidServiceType in neutron_lib.exceptions.

  • The PROVISIONAL_IPV6_PD_PREFIX constant is now available in neutron_lib.constants.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes BGPVPN Interconnection API to not allow the definition of an empty string Route Target (allowing it was simply wrong and unintentional).


New Features

  • A new converter convert_to_string into neutron_lib.api.converters. This method can convert an argument which is not None into string value.

  • The new net-mtu-writable extension API definition has been added as neutron_lib.api.definitions.network_mtu_writable. The new extension indicates that the network mtu attribute is writeable. Plugins supporting the new extension are expected to also support net-mtu.

  • The constant AZ_HINTS_DB_LEN has been added to neutron_lib.db.constants.
