Order Global IP

Order a global IPv4 or IPv6

This example uses verifyOrder method to check the order for errors, replace it by placeOrder method when you are ready to order.

import SoftLayer
from pprint import pprint

class Network:
    def __init__(self):
        self.client = SoftLayer.Client()

    def _get_package_id(self, keyname):
        _filter = {"type":{"keyName":{"operation":keyname}}}
        package = self.client['Product_Package'].getAllObjects(filter=_filter)
        return package[0]['id']
    def _get_item_price(self, package_id, item_keyname):
        _filter = {"items":{"keyName":{"operation":item_keyname}}}
        items = self.client['Product_Package'].getItems(filter=_filter, id=package_id)

        price_id = [p["id"] for p in items[0]["prices"]
                   if not p["locationGroupId"]][0]
        return price_id
    def order_global_ip(self, package, item_keyname):
        packageId = self._get_package_id(package)
        priceId = self._get_item_price(packageId, item_keyname)
        orderData = {
            "complexType": "SoftLayer_Container_Product_Order_Network_Subnet",
            "packageId": packageId,
            "prices": [{"id": priceId}],
            "quantity": 1
            # verifyOrder will check your order for errors. Replace this with placeOrder
            # when you're ready to order
            return self.client['Product_Order'].verifyOrder(orderData)
        except SoftLayer.SoftLayerAPIError as e:
            print("Unable to order: %s - %s" % (e.faultCode, e.faultString))

if __name__ == "__main__":
    # Available values are: GLOBAL_IPV4 and GLOBAL_IPV6
    item = "GLOBAL_IPV4"
    network = Network()
    receipt = network.order_global_ip(package, item)
