This resource type represents a public IP address on an Microsoft Azure image.

This resource type extends the OpenStack resource type OS::Neutron::FloatingIP.

In the blueprint designer, you can configure the properties that the following table includes. Properties are listed as either core or 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.

Table 1. Properties
