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

Note: For VDS deployments, only provider networks can be transparent. For NSX Data Center for vSphere and NSX-T Data Center deployments, only tenant networks can be transparent.

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

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