from libcloud.container.providers import get_driver
from libcloud.container.base import ContainerImage

driver = get_driver(Provider.RANCHER)

connection = driver("MYRANCHERACCESSKEY", "MYRANCHERSECRETKEY",
                    host="17.23.66.4", port=443)

image = ContainerImage("hastebin", "hastebin", "rlister/hastebin", "latest",
                       driver=None)

new_service = connection.ex_deploy_service(name="excitingservice", image=image,
                                           environmentid="1e2",
                                           environment={
