Cancel the resource or service for a billing Item. By default the billing item will be canceled on the next bill date and reclaim of the resource will begin shortly after the cancellation. Setting the 'cancelImmediately' property to true will start the cancellation immediately if the item is eligible to be canceled immediately.
The reason parameter could be from the list below: * 'No longer needed' * 'Business closing down' * 'Server / Upgrade Costs' * 'Migrating to larger server' * 'Migrating to smaller server' * 'Migrating to a different SoftLayer datacenter' * 'Network performance / latency' * 'Support response / timing' * 'Sales process / upgrades' * 'Moving to competitor'
A billing item's associated parent. This is to be used for billing items that are 'floating', and therefore are not child items of any parent billing item. If it is desired to associate an item to another, populate this with the SoftLayer_Billing_Item ID of that associated parent item.
This service returns billing items of a specified category code. This service should be used to retrieve billing items that you wish to cancel. Some billing items can be canceled via [SoftLayer_Security_Certificate_Request](/reference/datatypes/SoftLayer_Security_Certificate_Request) service.
In order to find billing items for cancellation, use [SoftLayer_Product_Item_Category::getValidCancelableServiceItemCategories](/reference/datatypes/$1/#$2) service to retrieve category codes that are eligible for cancellation.
Set an associated billing item to an orphan billing item. Associations allow you to tie an 'orphaned' billing item, any non-server billing item that doesn't have a parent item such as secondary IP subnets or StorageLayer accounts, to a server billing item. You may only set an association for an orphan to a server. You cannot associate a server to an orphan if the either the server or orphan billing items have a cancellation date set.
