Get storage credentials for Block Storage
Retrieving the username and password for Performance/Endurance Block storage

The following script allows you retrieve the username and password for Performance/Endurance Block storage if you have authorized hosts against the storage.

require 'softlayer_api'
require 'pp'

# Credentials to the API are read from a configuration file by default.
# See https://github.com/softlayer/softlayer-ruby/blob/master/lib/softlayer/Config.rb#L11-L44
network_storage_id = 1234567
client = SoftLayer::Client.new(:timeout => 120)
account_service = client['SoftLayer_Network_Storage_Iscsi']
object_mask = 'mask[allowedHardware[allowedHost[credential]],allowedVirtualGuests[allowedHost[credential]]]'
item = account_service.object_mask(object_mask).object_with_id(network_storage_id).getObject

pp item
