Correct.  Intents are used to interact with OpenVPN and Cisco AnyConnect.

Hi Mark,

Ok, so I suppose an Intent based interaction might work too (instead of
a config file).  For instance one Intent to add a connection and one
Intent to start a connection with a given name (or an Intent which does
both, and does not even permanently store the connection data in the VPN
app).  This could be done as sponsored development for your company if
you are interested.  You can also do the development yourself, of
course, and then contribute the changes back so we can integrate them in
the app.

How do you interact with that app?  Intents?
