Creating network (cURL)#

  1. Issue the following cURL command.

    Create network with cURL request

    $ curl -s https://$API_ENDPOINT/v2/$TENANT-ID/os-networksv2 \
           -X POST \
           -H "X-Auth-Project-Id: $account" \
           -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
           -H "Accept: application/json" \
           -H "X-Auth-Token: $AUTH_TOKEN" \
           -d '{"network": {"cidr": "", "label": "superprivate"}}' | python -m json.tool

    The operation returns the CIDR, ID, and label for the isolated network, as shown in the following JSON response.
