Here is how you do it.

#!/bin/bash

# Username used to login to control panel

# Customer ID of the account (the numbers that are in the URL when you login to mycloud control panel)
CUSTOMER_ID="100101010"

# This section simply retrieves the TOKEN
TOKEN=`curl https://identity.api.rackspacecloud.com/v2.0/tokens -X POST -d '{ "auth":{"RAX-KSKEY:apiKeyCredentials": { "username":"'$USERNAME'", "apiKey": "'$APIKEY'" }} }' -H "Content-type: application/json" |  python -mjson.tool | grep -A5 token | grep id | cut -d '"' -f4`
