SoftLayer_User_Customer_External_Binding_Verisign

Overview

The SoftLayer_User_Customer_External_Binding_Verisign data type contains information about a single VeriSign external binding. The external binding information is used when a SoftLayer customer logs into the SoftLayer customer portal to authenticate them against a 3rd party, in this case VeriSign.

The information provided by the VeriSign external binding data type includes:
* The type of credential
* The current state of the credential
** Enabled
** Disabled
** Locked
* The credential's expiration date
* The last time the credential was updated

SoftLayer users with an active external binding will be prohibited from using the API for security reasons.
