How To Use the Rackspace DNS Plugin

This plugin works against the Rackspace Cloud DNS provider. It is assumed that you have already setup an account and created the DNS zone(s) you will be working against.


First, go to the Profile page for your account and record the Rackspace API Key value from the Security section. You'll also need your account username.

Using the Plugin

Your account username is used with the RSUsername paraemter. The API key is used with the RSApiKey SecureString parameter.


The RSApiKeyInsecure parameter is deprecated and will be removed in the next major module version. If you are using it, please migrate to the Secure parameter set.

$pArgs = @{
    RSUsername = 'myusername'
    RSApiKey = (Read-Host "API Key" -AsSecureString)
