Hi All,

I was wondering can you use the openstack python sdk to access the firewall as a service, like you can access security groups.

I'm a college student doing a FYP and I'm new to openstack. Everything I'm doing is inside devstack using the openstack python sdk.

I need to be able to create a perimeter firewall and rules for that firewall and also list all rules created, I need the same functionality you have with security groups. I have been able to do this with the CLI but it doesn't suit the purposes for my FYP

My end objective is to have a python programs that create a series of security groups and the policies for each group and create a perimeter firewall and rules for that firewall. Then be able to pull of this information and store it. I have been able to do this for the security groups but I'm having no luck with the firewalls.

I have done research but I haven't been able to find a answer to this problem.

Any help would be greatfully appreciated.
