I config my openstack so the network type of tenant network will be vlan. To do this I config the ml2_conf.ini with below content:

network_vlan_ranges = external,v100:100:199,v200:200:299

It means physical network v100 will have vlan ID 100 to 199, physical network v200 will have vlan ID 200 to 299.

But when I create network with command

neutron net-create --provider:physical_network v100  net100

It will show error said policy not allowed. Can anyone tell me how to specify a physical network name when create tenant network?

Without the admin role, you will be unable to specify provider attributes when creating a network. Provider attributes include physical network, network type, and segmentation id. Other admin-only attributes include shared and router:external.

You will need to modify Neutron's policy.json file in order to allow non-admin users to modify provider attributes. Personally, I like to create custom roles and allow that role the ability to make changes previously limited to the admin role.
