Deprecate os-virtual-interfaces

Registered by Matt Riedemann on 2017-04-07

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "Deprecate multinic, os-virtual-interfaces, and floating IP action APIs" for updated plans.

The os-virtual-interfaces API only works for nova-network, which is deprecated. The os-interface API GET methods, to show and list ports, only works for neutron.

The os-virtual-interfaces API relies on the virtual_interfaces table in the nova database, which wasn't used for neutron until 2.32 and vif tags.

This blueprint proposes to deprecate the os-virtual-interfaces API which just lists virtual interfaces for a given server, and replace that with the os-interface API.

Rather than proxy the port show/list operations to neutron, we'll use either the virtual_interfaces table or the instance network info_cache. The os-interface API will still have the POST and DELETE methods for attaching and detaching a port from a server.

    Deprecate os-virtual-interfaces (spec)

I abandoned the spec for this since it conflated two changes, one was deprecating the os-virtual-interfaces API and the other was changing the os-interface API, which turned into a quagmire. So the only thing we could agree on was deprecating the os-virtual-interfaces API, and agreed to just merge that in with the spec to deprecate the multinic API: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/384261/ -- mriedem 20170411
