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 Data Center for vSphere and NSX-T Data Center 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
