Create a Network


Provide a template containing the following properties to create a Network: * networkIdentifier * cidr * name

The networkIdentifier must be an IP address within RFC 1918 blocks: * * * The cidr must be an integer between 16 and 24, inclusive. The networkIdentifier/cidr must represent a valid subnet specification. The name must not be empty, but otherwise can contain up to 50 characters of user specified information to identify the Network.

The subnet specification of the Network bounds the IP address space which can be utilized and constrains the creation of Subnets within the Network.

Example networkIdentifier/CIDR combinations: * * * * * *
