Connect a LAN to a Cross Connect

To associate a Cross Connect with your VDC and the configured private LAN, you can perform the following API calls:
  • POST creates a LAN and connects it to a Cross Connect in a single API call.
  • PUT or PATCH can be used to update the corresponding /lan resource.


The following is an example of a PUT operation:
curl --location
--request PUT '{datacenter_UUID}/lans/2' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Basic <auth-token>' \
--data '{   
"properties": {       
"pcc": "2e136690-1169-424f-ac4e-ead3fc02292b"
