The openvswitch snap provides userspace tooling for the openvswitch kernel model, supporting programming of network data paths using openflow.
As you might expect this requires sufficient level of system permissions to actually function.
Please could the snap be auto-connected to:
+1 from me for use-of and auto-connect to
openvswitch. Note the
openvswitch-support interfaces are super-privileged - I have vetted the publisher (although I wonder if this should be published under the Canonical account rather than your own account @jamespage?)
Moving the snap to the Canonical account would make sense to me - we’ll leave it in the edge channel for now.
+1 from me as well for auto-connect
openvswitch since are clearly required for
openvswitch to properly operate. +2 votes for, 0 votes against. Granting the requested auto-connections. This is now live.
@jamespage thanks for moving the snap to the Canonical account!
