IBM SoftLayer

Integration with IBM SoftLayer can be set up using the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the IBM SoftLayer console
  2. Click on your name in the top-right corner of the page
  3. Note the Username and Authentication Key on the page
  4. From the Resource Handlers page in the CloudBolt UI, click the “Add a resource handler” button and enter the relevant information from above, and select which datacenters you would like CloudBolt to manage

Note: IBM SoftLayer appends a domain name to the hostname you provide. By default, CloudBolt will append ‘’. For example, if you provide ‘president’ as the hostname, the FQDN will become ‘’. Contact CloudBolt Support for information on how to change the domain name suffix to something else.
