Create APIC Tenant with Contract


This workflow creates a new tenant in a specified APIC cluster along with the necessary network configurations to run a simple web service demonstration. Once the workflow is completed you can put a demo 'web server' vm in the 'server' port group, and a 'web client' vm in the 'client' port group and test icmp and http - all other protocols will fail between the 2 vms.

For APIC version 1.0(2m) there should be no need to disable https.  1.0(2j) had HTTPS/TLSv1.1/TLSv1.2 support only on the APIC.  1.0(2m) adds TLSv1.0 back so UCSD should be able to communicate just fine over https again.
