Release Notes

April 5, 2017

Portal

  • Fixed a bug to enforce correct cancellation order of volumes with replicas. Previously it was possible to cancel storage with replica, but the process would fail as the replica must be cancelled first. The portal will now direct to you first cancel the replica volume.

API

Backend

  • Fixed an issue where ordering IP addresses sometimes failed when using the PayPal payment method or when attempting to order from a quote.
  • Changed SoftLayer to IBM Bluemix in a number of automated emails and tickets.
  • Mass Reboot and Migrate tickets now send out the contents of the ticket updates in emails. Previously they just included links to the ticket in the customer portal.

Portal

  • Corrected an issue with customers being unable to claim an order quote for Performance or Endurance storage.
  • Fixed an issue where subusers on an account were not able to order Netscaler VPX services even with the appropriate portal permissions.
  • Exception message was unclear when a user without the ‘ticket add’ and ‘ticket view’ permissions tried to create an upgrade order. New change accurately indicates that the user must have these two permissions in order to create an upgrade order.
  • Resolved an issue where customers were unable to set the customer portal timezone to Brazil.

API

  • When creating a ticket the SoftLayer_Ticket template object requires the assignedUserId property to be defined. This required the additional step of gathering the userId. Going forward the assignedUserId will default to the current user making the API call.

Backend

  • Pushed code to allow customers based in Serbia, Taiwan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, or South Africa to input Vat ID.
