Re: REST APIs from FlexNet Licensing operations.

Hi @ejohnson1 ,

 

thanks for the reply, Will check the API and respond. 

Actually I want to avoid SDK and implement the same using SOAP web services. As per your reply, still there is a dependency on SDK for decoding the addonLicense ...etc attributes.

Please clarify.

Re: REST APIs from FlexNet Licensing operations.

Hi Ravi,

Yes, the response requires decoding from base64 and more importantly, the response requires processing by the SDK API.

The analogy I would use is the response is the equivalent of a gift card (e.g. Starbucks) and redeeming the card for a coffee / license is the equivalent of tapping the card (e.g. QR code decode) then receiving your coffee (processing the license via the SDK API).

HI @ejohnson1 ,

 

thanks for the reply.

Since the  SDK library size is more, if we use SOAP/REST the solution would be light weight. Hence, would like to reduce SDK foot print.

Re: REST APIs from FlexNet Licensing operations.

Hi Ravi,

 

REST is the lightest of light weight available.

Once configured, it's a single API (access_request), which does the capability exchange and license acquisition in one go (no processing of  the capability response)

Hi @ejohnson1 ,

 

for using SOAP web services, can you point to the guide to understand more about the client authentication part and also which credentials to be used.
