Confirmed, I'm seeing this error too. Thanks for the well-written bug report!

Engineering Team, which is subscribed to neutron. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1631432 Title: port-update fails if allowed_address_pair is not a dict Status in neutron: Triaged Status in python-neutronclient: Triaged Bug description: CLI help is misleading. Neutron port-update called with parameters according to documentation returns an error. neutron help port-update .. --allowed-address-pair ip_address=IP_ADDR[,mac_address=MAC_ADDR] Allowed address pair associated with the port.You can repeat this option. # neutron port-update 3f36328f-0629-4e41-afa8-e2992815bcd0 --allowed-address-pairs ip_address=10.0.0.1 The number of allowed address pair exceeds the maximum 10. Neutron server returns request_ids: ['req-62e258cc-d47d-4ab7-8e69-a13c50865042'] Work correctly when specific data type is enforced: # neutron port-update 3f36328f-0629-4e41-afa8-e2992815bcd0 --allowed-address-pairs type=dict list=true ip_address=10.0.0.1 Updated port: 3f36328f-0629-4e41-afa8-e2992815bcd0 It always should be a list of dict, even when only one pair is given. CLI doc should be corrected. Furthermore, input data in neutron-server seem to be not validated correctly. The reason of misleading exception about exceeded number of address pairs is an implicit test of length of user data. In case of list of dict it is a number of elements of list - number of address pairs. When only one pair is given, it returns length of string "ip_address=10.0.0.1" == 20 what is greater than 10. There is a try-except clause for TypeError exception, but it is not thrown in this case. This bug is observed if there is no other pairs already defined on given port. In other case lists are merged and type error is thrown. def _validate_allowed_address_pairs(address_pairs, valid_values=None): .. try: if len(address_pairs) > cfg.CONF.max_allowed_address_pair: raise AllowedAddressPairExhausted( quota=cfg.CONF.max_allowed_address_pair) except TypeError: raise webob.exc.HTTPBadRequest( _("Allowed address pairs must be a list."))
