class SoftLayer.managers.ordering.OrderingManager(client)[source]

Manager to help ordering via the SoftLayer API.

Parameters:client (SoftLayer.API.BaseClient) – the client instance
static filter_outlet_packages(packages)[source]

Remove packages designated as OUTLET.

Those type of packages must be handled in a different way, and they are not supported at the moment.

Parameters:packages – Dictionary of packages. Name and description keys must be present in each of them.
generate_order(package_keyname, location, item_keynames, complex_type=None, hourly=True, preset_keyname=None, extras=None, quantity=1)[source]

Generates an order with the given package and prices.

This function takes in parameters needed for an order and generates an order dictionary. This dictionary can then be used in either verify or placeOrder().

Parameters:
  • package_keyname (str) – The keyname for the package being ordered
  • location (str) – The datacenter location string for ordering (Ex: DALLAS13)
  • item_keynames (list) – The list of item keyname strings to order. To see list of possible keynames for a package, use list_items() (or slcli order item-list)
  • complex_type (str) – The complex type to send with the order. Typically begins with SoftLayer_Container_Product_Order_.
  • hourly (bool) – If true, uses hourly billing, otherwise uses monthly billing
  • preset_keyname (string) – If needed, specifies a preset to use for that package. To see a list of possible keynames for a package, use list_preset() (or slcli order preset-list)
  • extras (dict) – The extra data for the order in dictionary format. Example: A VSI order requires hostname and domain to be set, so extras will look like the following: {‘virtualGuests’: [{‘hostname’: ‘test’, ‘domain’: ‘softlayer.com’}]}
  • quantity (int) – The number of resources to order
generate_order_template(quote_id, extra, quantity=1)[source]
