This resource type represents a network on VMware vCenter. You must use VMware NSX to access this resource type.
This resource type is provided with the engine, but it is not implemented. You can use it in blueprints and in configuration files, but when you provision an environment, this resource type is ignored. However, the blueprint uses the core properties and extended properties, if any, from this resource type. Review and configure the applicable heat resources that apply to your configuration information.
In the blueprint designer, you can configure the properties that the
following table includes. Properties are listed as either
extended. Each type
of property is located in separate sections of the heat resource that you can view in the blueprint
designer. You set the core properties in the properties section and set the extended properties in
the metadata section of the blueprint.
