The information on this page refers to License Statistics v6.18 and newer, which added the ability to view API resources for reports. If you are using a version previous to v6.18, see documentation for previous versions.

License Statistics offers a web-based API that communicates through the HTTP protocol and can be used across a number of programming languages and tools. With the API, you can automate report generation and extract reports on demand in order to easily integrate them with other business processes; for example, to view the reports you care about most or send them via email to your manager or a specific department of your company.

The License Statistics API is especially useful for system integrators and advanced users who want to get even more flexibility from License Statistics. The License Statistics UI is one use case for using the API, because it uses the same API to display data in a web browser. To aid in integration with the License Statistics UI, you can see a preview of the API resources for that report by clicking the "Show API resource" icon located at the upper right corner of most report pagesSee Viewing API resources for more detailed information.
