Config option to control visibility of cisco-policy-profile resources for tenants

Problem description

Currently, cisco-policy-profile resources must be explicitly assigned to tenants.

Proposed change

This proposes adding a config option to Cisco N1KV plugin to control the visibility of these resources.

The options may be True/False. Selecting True would allow tenants access to all the cisco-policy-profile resources without the need for explicit assignment. The False option would turn off the visibility and require explicit assignment of a cisco-policy-profile resources to a tenant. Default value is True

Alternatives

Admin needs to explicitly assign cisco-policy-profile resources to tenants.
