Notes

Note

  • Once a floating_ip is created, all parameters except server, reverse_ptr and tags are read-only.

  • All operations are performed using the cloudscale.ch public API v1.

  • For details consult the full API documentation: https://www.cloudscale.ch/en/api/v1.

  • A valid API token is required for all operations. You can create as many tokens as you like using the cloudscale.ch control panel at https://control.cloudscale.ch.
