### How do I shut off/disable a router and then re-enable it for network testing purpose??

Hi,

Is it possible to shut off the router or disable(not delete) an interface of the router and then re-enable it? I want to do this for network connectivity testing purpose.

I have gone through the command options available in Neutron API. router-delete or router-interface-delete commands are there, but there is no such command like router-disable or router-enable.

Thanks.
