Advanced Quote Ordering
Place an order using a quote with SSH keys and post provisioning scripts. Along with a few examples of how to get the needed data.

        guests = {
            'hostname': 'quotetest', 
            'domain': 'example.com'

        quote = self.client['Billing_Order_Quote']
        quote_container = quote.getRecalculatedOrderContainer(id=quote_id)

        container['quantity'] = 1
        container['virtualGuests'] = []

        # the hardware variable was getting filled out for some reason, even though there were no hardware on this quote.
        container['hardware'] = None
