Bug Description

This report proposes to introduce a new filter for filtering floatingips list result with substring of IP address. For example:

  GET /v2.0/floatingips?floating_ip_address_substr=172.24.4.

This allows users/admins to efficiently retrieve a list of floating IP addresses within a network, which is the common usage pattern in real production scenario.

A use case is that cloud admin finds some suspicious traffics from some known floatingips cidr and want to locate the targets (i.e. the VMs). Retrieve a filtered list of floating IP addresses would be the first step for them.

Guessing this will be just like the fixed ip address substring work that was done last cycle?

@Brian,

Yes, I assume the implementation would be similar as the fixed ip substring filter.

@zhaobo,

Could you confirm if you still need this bug?

I asked that because this bug was splitted out from https://bugs.launchpad.net/neutron/+bug/1723026 and you are the original bug reporter. Per my understanding of your comment [1], it looks things were changed and you don't need this bug anymore?

@Hongbin,

As exposing device_id part has high priority, we may still need the filter function but not like the proposal here. So I suggest that we can leave it alone and focus on device_id part right now. If any requirements want this, just reopen this and change the description based on the real implementation of new device_id API part.
