Group Based Policy Rule Extension

Registered by cathy Hong Zhang on 2014-10-06

Currently there is a Group Based Policy proposal in Neutron which allows application administrators to express their networking requirements using group and policy abstractions. The policy abstraction is specified by a contract. A contract consists of Policy Rules that define the communication criteria between endpoint groups. Each rule contains a Classifier and Action.

However, GBP BP has some limitations which are addressed in this blueprint.
A more complete policy framework and APIs should include the following features:
1. Allow multiple classifiers in a policy rule
2. Explicit specification of precedence for list of policy rules and actions
3. "AND" "OR" logical selectors of classifiers
4. Enhance "redirect to a service chain" action to include specification of service functions associated with the chain

The BP is being proposed by Cathy Zhang, Louis Fourie, and Nicolas Bouthors
