Some Neutron plugins like OpenContrail not only implement the APIs specified by Neutron but also extend the API set to provide additional functionality. Some examples include the ability to specify security policies and the ability to define sequences of network functions to be applied to selected tenant traffic.
OpenStack Heat however does not support those extensions out of box. We will therefore see how OpenStack Heat can be extended and support for Neutron extensions can be added.
We will then see examples of using OpenStack Heat to orchestrate chains of network functions to demonstrate such extensions to OpenStack Heat in action.
