Register your SoftLayer cloud account with RightScale so that you can use the Dashboard to manage your SoftLayer cloud resources.
After logging into the Dashboard, go to Settings > Account Settings > Clouds. Click Connect to a Cloud and click the (+) icon next to SoftLayer.
Next, enter your SoftLayer cloud credentials.
Enter your User ID and Api Key and click Continue.
Once your cloud credentials have been verified, you will see that the SoftLayer cloud is enabled under the Clouds tab. You will now see all of your SoftLayer resources under the Clouds menu (Clouds > SoftLayer).
On the same Clouds tab or on the Cloud Credentials widget in the Overview tab, you may check the status of your cloud.

Allow RightScale several minutes to populate your account with the appropriate images before launching servers after initially adding a cloud. In the RightScale Dashboard, navigate to Clouds> OpenStack > Images where RightScale queries every few minutes for the images.
