# Create a dedicated firewall
#
# This script will config a dedicated firewall service on
# a vlan using the SoftLayer_Product_Order::placeOrder
# method it is needed to build a skeleton SoftLayer_Container_Product_Order_Network_Protection_Firewall_Dedicated
# object and provide the ID of vlan in which
# the firewall service will be configured
# To get prices IDs for firewall service use
# SoftLayer_Product_Package::getItemPrices method.

# So we can talk to the SoftLayer API:
import SoftLayer

# For nice debug output:firewall
import pprint

# Your SoftLayer API username and key.
#
# Generate an API key at the SoftLayer Customer Portal

API_USERNAME = 'set_me'
API_KEY = 'set_me'

vlanId = 811323
orderTemplate = {
    'complexType': 'SoftLayer_Container_Product_Order_Network_Protection_Firewall_Dedicated',
    'packageId': 0,
    'quantity': 1,
    'vlanId': vlanId,
    'prices': [
        {'id': 2390}
    ]
}

# Create a client object.
client = SoftLayer.Client(username=API_USERNAME, api_key=API_KEY)
# Replace the verifyOrder() method with placeOrder
# after testing.
try:
    result = client['Product_Order'].verifyOrder(orderTemplate)
    pprint.pprint(result)

except SoftLayer.SoftLayerAPIError as e:
    print("Error  faultCode=%s, faultString=%s"
          % (e.faultCode, e.faultString))
    exit(1)
