SoftLayer DNS

NOTE: This provider is currently has no maintainer. We are looking for a volunteer. If this provider breaks it may be disabled or removed if it can not be easily fixed.

Configuration

To use this provider, add an entry to creds.json with TYPE set to SOFTLAYER along with authentication fields. Authenticating with SoftLayer requires at least a username and api_key for authentication. It can also optionally take a timeout and endpoint_url parameter however these are optional and will use standard defaults if not provided.
Example:
creds.json
{
"softlayer": {
"TYPE": "SOFTLAYER",
"api_key": "mysecretapikey",
"username": "myusername"
}
}
To maintain compatibility with existing softlayer CLI services these can also be provided by the SL_USERNAME and SL_API_KEY environment variables or specified in the ~/.softlayer, but this is discouraged. More information about these methods can be found at the softlayer-go library documentation.

Usage

An example configuration:
dnsconfig.js
var REG_NONE = NewRegistrar("none"); // no registrar
var DSP_SOFTLAYER = NewDnsProvider("softlayer");
​
D("example.tld", registrary, DnsProvider(DSP_SOFTLAYER),
A("test", "1.2.3.4")
);

Metadata

This provider does not recognize any special metadata fields unique to SoftLayer dns. For compatibility with the pre-generated NAMESERVER fields it's recommended to set the NS TTL to 86400 such as:
dnsconfig.js
D("example.tld", REG_NONE, DnsProvider(SOFTLAYER),
NAMESERVER_TTL(86400),
​
A("test", "1.2.3.4")
);
