getObject retrieves the SoftLayer_Network_Subnet_IpAddress object whose ID number corresponds to the ID number of the init parameter passed to the SoftLayer_Network_Subnet_IpAddress service. You can only retrieve the IP address whose subnet is associated with a VLAN that is associated with the account that your portal user is assigned to.
Every SoftLayer IP address is defined in the SoftLayer_Network_Subnet_IpAddress service. SoftLayer IP addresses are assigned to a SoftLayer_Network_Subnet. The SoftLayer_Network_Subnet_IpAddress service gives you information about an IP address such if it is reserved, a network address, or a gateway. Use the data returned by these methods with other API services to get more detailed information about your services.
SoftLayer customers can order and manage IP addresses through the customer portal. If you need to cancel a subnet please open a sales ticket in our customer portal and our account management staff will assist you.
