[Deprecated] Create a new subnet registration


The subnet registration service has been deprecated.

Create registration with a global registrar to associate an assigned subnet with the provided contact details.

Contact information is provided in the form of a SoftLayer_Account_Regional_Registry_Detail, which reference can be provided when the registration is created or afterwards. Registrations without an associated person detail will remain in the OPEN status. To specify a person detail when creating a registration, the detailReferences property should be populated with a list item providing a detailId value referencing the SoftLayer_Account_Regional_Registry_Detail.

The same applies to SoftLayer_Account_Regional_Registry_Detail, though these references need not be provided. The system will create a reference to the network described by the registration’s subnet in the absence of a provided network detail reference. However, if a specific detail is referenced, it must describe the same subnet as the registration.

A template containing the following properties will create a subnet registration:

  • networkIdentifier
  • cidr
  • detailReferences

networkIdentifier is the base address of the public, SoftLayer owned subnet which is being registered. cidr must be an integer representing the CIDR of the subnet to be registered. The networkIdentifier/cidr must represent an assigned subnet. detailReferences tie the registration to SoftLayer_Account_Regional_Registry_Detail objects.


Name Type Description
templateObject SoftLayer_Network_Subnet_Registration The SoftLayer_Network_Subnet_Registration object that you wish to create.
