Vendors and third-party application developers write custom ML2 mechanism drivers in order to integrate their products and applications with OpenStack. The main aspect of writing mechanism drivers is the implementation of specific methods related to the Network, Subnet, and Port. In this recipe, we will see how to process API requests specifically for a Network.
In this recipe, we will enhance our basic mechanism driver code and add two new methods in order to process API requests for a Network. Ensure that your DevStack setup is up and running, with
cookbook as one of the mechanism drivers, as shown in the previous recipe.
