Go SDK

Description

The Go SDK wraps the latest version of the ProfitBricks Cloud API. All API operations are performed over SSL and authenticated using your ProfitBricks portal credentials. The API can be accessed within an instance running in ProfitBricks or directly over the Internet from any application that can send an HTTPS request and receive an HTTPS response.

Getting Started

Before you begin you will need to have signed-up for a ProfitBricks account. The credentials you setup during sign-up will be used to authenticate against the API.

Installation

Install the Go language from: Go Installation

The GOPATH environment variable specifies the location of your Go workspace. It is likely the only environment variable you'll need to set when developing Go code. This is an example of pointing to a workspace configured underneath your home directory:

mkdir -p ~/go/bin
export GOPATH=~/go
export GOBIN=$GOPATH/bin
export PATH=$PATH:$GOBIN

The following go command will download profitbricks-sdk-go to your configured GOPATH:

go get "github.com/profitbricks/profitbricks-sdk-go"

The source code of the package will be located at:

$GOBIN\src\profitbricks-sdk-go

Create main package file example.go:

package main

import (
    "fmt"
)

func main() {
}

Import GO SDK:

import(
    "github.com/profitbricks/profitbricks-sdk-go"
)

Authenticating

Add your credentials for connecting to ProfitBricks:

profitbricks.SetAuth("username", "password")

Caution: You will want to ensure you follow security best practices when using credentials within your code or stored in a file.

Error Handling

The SDK will raise custom exceptions when the Cloud API returns an error. There are four response types:

HTTP Code Description
401 The supplied user credentials are invalid.
404 The requested resource cannot be found.
422 The request body includes invalid JSON.
429 The Cloud API rate limit has been exceeded.

Reference

This section provides details on all the available operations and the arguments they accept. Brief code snippets demonstrating usage are also included.

Depth

Many of the List or Get operations will accept an optional depth argument. Setting this to a value between 0 and 5 affects the amount of data that is returned. The detail returned varies somewhat depending on the resource being queried, however it generally follows this pattern.

Depth Description
0 Only direct properties are included. Children are not included.
1 Direct properties and children's references are returned.
2 Direct properties and children's properties are returned.
3 Direct properties, children's properties, and descendant's references are returned.
4 Direct properties, children's properties, and descendant's properties are returned.
5 Returns all available properties.

This SDK sets the Depth=5 by default as that works well in the majority of cases. You may find that setting Depth to a lower or higher value could simplify a later operation by reducing or increasing the data available in the response object.

You can change the value using SetDepth:

profitbricks.SetDepth("1")

Data Centers

Virtual Data Centers (VDCs) are the foundation of the ProfitBricks platform. VDCs act as logical containers for all other objects you will be creating, e.g., servers. You can provision as many VDCs as you want. VDCs have their own private network and are logically segmented from each other to create isolation.

List Data Centers

This operation will list all currently provisioned VDCs that your account credentials provide access to.

There are no request arguments that need to be supplied.

Call ListDatacenters:

ListDatacenters()

Retrieve a Data Center

Use this to retrieve details about a specific VDC.

The following table describes the request arguments:

Name Required Type Description
datacenterId yes string The ID of the virtual data center.

Pass the arguments to GetDatacenter:

Create a Data Center

Use this operation to create a new VDC. You can create a "simple" VDC by supplying just the required Name and Location arguments. This operation also has the capability of provisioning a "complex" VDC by supplying additional arguments for servers, volumes, LANs, and/or load balancers.

The following table describes the request arguments:

Name Required Type Description
datacenter yes object A Datacenter object describing the VDC being created.

Build the Datacenter resource object:

var obj = Datacenter{
    Properties: DatacenterProperties{
    Name:        "GO SDK Test",
    Description: "GO SDK test datacenter",
    Location:    location,
    },
}

Pass the object to CreateDatacenter:

Name yes string The name of the VDC.
Location yes string The physical ProfitBricks location where the VDC will be created.
Description no string A description for the VDC, e.g. staging, production.

LINUX Use this for Linux distributions such as CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, etc.
OTHER Use this for any volumes that do not match one of the other licence types.
UNKNOWN This value may be inherited when you've uploaded an image and haven't set the license type. Use one of the options above instead.

Note: You will need to provide either the Image or the LicenceType arguments when creating a volume. A LicenceType is required, but if Image is supplied, it is already set and cannot be changed. Either the ImagePassword or SshKeys arguments need to be supplied when creating a volume using one of the official ProfitBricks images. SshKeys should be specified for ProfitBricks supplied Linux images if you need remote SSH access, as the ImagePassword only applies to local logins via the DCD console. Only official ProfitBricks provided images support the SshKeys and ImagePassword arguments.


Update a Volume

You can update various attributes of an existing volume; however, some restrictions are in place:

You can increase the size of an existing storage volume. You cannot reduce the size of an existing storage volume. The volume size will be increased without requiring a reboot if the relevant hot plug settings (disc_virtio_hot_plug, disc_virtio_hot_unplug, etc.) have been set to true. The additional capacity is not added automatically added to any partition, therefore you will need to handle that inside the OS afterwards. Once you have increased the volume size you cannot decrease the volume size.

Since an existing volume is being modified, none of the request arguments are specifically required as long as the changes being made satisfy the requirements for creating a volume.

The following table describes the request arguments:

Name Required Type Description
datacenterId yes string The ID of the VDC.
volumeId yes string The ID of the volume.
Name no string The name of the volume.
Size no int The size of the volume in GB. You may only increase the size when updating.
Bus no string The bus type of the volume (VIRTIO or IDE). Default: VIRTIO.
LicenceType no string The licence type of the volume. Options: LINUX, WINDOWS, WINDOWS2016, UNKNOWN, OTHER. You may get an error trying to update LicenceType depending on the Image that was used to create the volume. For example, you cannot update the LicenceType for a volume created from a ProfitBricks supplied OS image.

Note: Trying to change the Image, Type, or AvailabilityZone in an update request will result in an error.

Update a NIC

You can update -- in full or partially -- various attributes on the NIC; however, some restrictions are in place:

The primary address of a NIC connected to a load balancer can only be changed by changing the IP of the load balancer. You can also add additional reserved, public IPs to the NIC.

The user can specify and assign private IPs manually. Valid IP addresses for private networks are 10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12 or 192.168.0.0/16.
