If you are still struggling with this issue,

please make 'enable_quotas': False under OPENSTACK_NEUTRON_NETWORKin , this worked for me.

my complete settings looks like

    'enable_router': False,
    'enable_quotas': False,
    'enable_distributed_router': False,
    'enable_ha_router': False,
    'enable_lb': False,
    'enable_firewall': False,
    'enable_vpn': False,
    'enable_fip_topology_check': False,

Hello Mukul,

Edit the openstack dashboard configuration file /etc/openstack-dashboard/

This dict contains the flags to enable networking services to openstack dashboard. If you have chosen provider networking option while deploying openstack neutron service, You should make these changes to get router and its actions in horizon web interface.

OPENSTACK_NEUTRON_NETWORK = { 'enable_router': True, 'enable_quotas': True, 'enable_distributed_router': False, 'enable_ha_router': False, 'enable_lb': False, 'enable_firewall': False, 'enable_vpn': False, 'enable_fip_topology_check': False, }


Hope you have followed the same doc for your openstack deployment.

Best Regards, Radhakrishnan Rk

Hi Radhakrishnan,

Thanks for your suggestion, parameters like "enable_router" used to disable complete router section from openstack dashboard (i.e. Project -> Network -> Router), but in our scenario all these parameters are set with proper value. Issue is that we are not able to see "Create_Router" option inside (i.e. Project -> Network -> Router) but we are able to see "Delete_Router" option inside same path.

We played around all the parameter inside OPENSTACK_NEUTRON_NETWORK but still issue persists.

Regards, Mukul
