I couldn't find any doc related to this. Could someone please provide any pointer for this?

Finally, I enabled the Firewall as a Service in Openstack kilo by the below procedure. Just adding this so that it may help someone.

  1. Added "service_plugins = router," in neutron.conf on both controller and network node.
  2. Added the below line in fwaas_driver.ini on network node.

    [DEFAULT] [fwaas] driver = enabled = True

  3. Restarted all neutron services in Network node and neutron server in controller node.
  4. Set "True" against firewall in on controller node and restarted apache.

That's it! Got the firewall panel on the Horizon GUI. Also able to apply FW policies to the VMs from the router level.

Thanks, craja
