You can assign floating IP addresses to a running virtual instance in OpenStack.

To enable assignment of floating IP addresses, you must configure IP forwarding and create a floating IP pool in Red Hat OpenStack. For more information, see the Red Hat OpenStack documentation.

You must entitle the Associate Floating IP and Disassociate Floating IP actions to machine owners. The entitled users can then associate a floating IP address to a provisioned machine from the external networks attached to the machine by selecting an available address from the floating IP address pool. After a floating IP address has been associated with a machine, a vRealize Automation user can select a Disassociate Floating IP option to view the currently assigned floating IP addresses and disassociate an address from a machine.
