Retrieve account VLAN and subnet information.

Retrieve a list of all VLANs associated with a SoftLayer customer account
and print a simple report detailing these VLANs and the subnets assigned to
them. We do this with a call to the getNetworkVlans() method in the
SoftLayer_Account API service using an object mask to retrieve the VLANs'
associated subnets and primary router records. See below for more details.

import SoftLayer.API
from pprint import pprint as pp

# Your SoftLayer API username and key.
USERNAME = 'set me'
API_KEY = 'set me'

# Declaring the API client
client = SoftLayer.Client(username=USERNAME, api_key=API_KEY)
accountService = client['SoftLayer_Account']

Declaring an object mask to get more information about the VLANs
such as the primaryRouter and the subnets
objectMask = "mask[primaryRouter, subnets[ipAddresses]]"

# Sending the request to get the VLANs
    result = accountService.getNetworkVlans(mask=objectMask)
except SoftLayer.SoftLayerAPIError as e:
    print("Unable to retrieve the VLAN list. faultCode=%s, faultString=%s"
          % (e.faultCode, e.faultString))
