Data Object Description

This data object type is used to describe port groups. Port groups are used to group virtual network adapters on a virtual switch, associating them with networks and network policies.


Name Type Description
computedPolicyHostNetworkPolicy Computed network policies that are applicable for a port group. The inheritance scheme for PortGroup requires knowledge about the NetworkPolicy for a port group and its parent virtual switch as well as the logic for computing the results. This information is provided as a convenience so that callers need not duplicate the inheritance logic to determine the proper values for a network policy.

See the description of the NetworkPolicy data object type for more information.

key*xsd:string The linkable identifier.
