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.
To use this provider, add an entry to
SOFTLAYERalong with authentication fields. Authenticating with SoftLayer requires at least a
api_keyfor authentication. It can also optionally take a
endpoint_urlparameter however these are optional and will use standard defaults if not provided.
To maintain compatibility with existing softlayer CLI services these can also be provided by the
SL_API_KEYenvironment variables or specified in the
~/.softlayer, but this is discouraged. More information about these methods can be found at the softlayer-go library documentation.
An example configuration:
var REG_NONE = NewRegistrar("none"); // no registrar
var DSP_SOFTLAYER = NewDnsProvider("softlayer");
D("example.tld", registrary, DnsProvider(DSP_SOFTLAYER),
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:
D("example.tld", REG_NONE, DnsProvider(SOFTLAYER),
