Add webhook uri to Transient virtual servers IBM Cloud Interface

It's usefull to be able to add/remove a webhook url from the IBM Cloud Portal Interface for Transient virtual servers and not using just the Softlayer API SoftLayer_Virtual_Guest::setTransientWebhook.

    "this would be new work, probably 2 week effort on our team, and we're pretty swamped right now. Seems like pretty low priority since this can already be done via API" - per alex

    According to documentation (, the only way to set the notifications for reclaims of transient virtual servers is to use the SLDN API method SoftLayer_Virtual_Guest::setWebhook(uri, secret).

    I thought, since the API already exists, it would be useful and not that complicated to add a option in the IBM Cloud Interface for Transient virtual servers to set this url, to not have clients like me call the API manually.
