Ability to assign cisco nw profile to multi-tenants in single request

https://blueprints.launchpad.net/neutron/+spec/cisco-network-profile-multi-tenants-support

Add the support to assign a cisco network profile to multiple tenants in a single request

Problem description

Currently with Cisco N1kv plugin, admin is only able to assign cisco network profile to one tenant in a request. So admin has to send multiple requests to assign a cisco network profile to multiple tenants.

Proposed change

The proposed change is to make the create network profile and update network profile functions to take a list of tenant ids, and then update the profile-tenant binding info accordingly.

Alternatives

The Alternative way is to send multiple requests, assigning to one tenant per request. This alternative is obviously too tedious for admin users, especially when a admin has a lot of tenants to manage.

Data model impact

None

REST API impact

for network_profile resource, ‘add_tenant’ and ‘remove_tenant’ attributes are changed to ‘add_tenants’ and ‘remove_tenants’. And Instead of taking one tenant id, now they are taking a list of tenant ids.

Security impact

None

Notifications impact

None

Other end user impact

There is a corresponding change in python-neutronclient: In cisco network profile create cli, admin can add repeated –add-tenant option; In cisco network profile update cli, admin can add repeated –add-tenant and repeated –remove-tenant option

in horizon: admin can select multiple tenants during creating cisco network profile; admin can select or deselect multiple tenants during updating cisco network profile.
