"""
Get available locations.

This script will retrieve a collection of valid locations for a given package and the server.
It displays the same locations as Control Portal does.
E.g: Portal Link: https://manage.softlayer.com/Sales/configureOrder/265/49565/
package = 265
server = 49565

import SoftLayer

# Your SoftLayer API username and key.
API_USERNAME = 'set me'

# Declare the package id
package = 200
# Declare the server id
server = 37318
# Create a client instance
client = SoftLayer.Client(username=API_USERNAME, api_key=API_KEY)
# Declare an object mask to get location conflicts for the server
priceMask = 'mask[locationConflicts]'
