VLAN-transparent networks allow tagged packets to pass through without tags being removed or changed.


For VDS deployments, only provider networks can be transparent. For NSX-V and NSX-T networks, only tenant networks can be transparent.

To enable VLAN transparency on a network, include the --transparent-vlan parameter and disable port security on the VLAN when you create the network. For example:

openstack network create --project project-uuid --transparent-vlan --disable-port-security vlan-id
