Bug Description

I installed neutron (Rocky) in Ubuntu exactly following the documentation

I ended up with having no provider network.

Are there addional steps required to add a provider network? If so, why is the documentation keeping this fact secret?

This bug tracker is for errors with the documentation, use the following as a template and remove or add fields as you see fit. Convert [ ] into [x] to check boxes:

- [x] This doc is inaccurate in this way: Ending up with no provider network
- [x] This is a doc addition request.
- [ ] I have a fix to the document that I can paste below including example: input and output.

Where is this link? I double checked the guide and still cannot find it!

This is not an Openstack-Bug, this is a Documentation-Bug! Probably I opened this bug in the wrong place. Where are Bugs in the documentation to be reported?

Hmm, from quick look it indeed looks that link to may be missing in docs' menu. Maybe that should be checked and fixed.

The document that guides in the creation of the provider network is external to neutron. It's linked from this other document

And it's intended to be followed right before launching an instance.
Note that the documentation there is not branched.

I think it makes sense to link it also at the end of all option 1 documents.

    Install doc: append provider network creation link

    Creating the provider network is a necessary step for option 1. The step
    is only described in a document in the general installation guide.
    This patch links this document at the end of every option1 controller
    installation document
