The information on this page refers to License Statistics v6.1 and newer, which improved the usability of creating API tokens. If you are using a version previous to v6.1, see documentation for previous versions.

License Statistics users can integrate reports generated by License Statistics with their custom external applications by using the License Statistics API. The API can be used with a variety of different applications, across a number of programming languages and tools. The License Statistics API is the best choice for system integrators and advanced users who want flexible, on-demand access to License Statistics data.

In order to make API requests, you must use a token, which you can generate as described below. API tokens cannot be shared between users. You can create as many API tokens as you need.

  1. Go to API under your logged in username, shown in the upper right corner of the application window.
  2. Click Add to create a new API token. A dialog will open that lets you optionally add a description to identify the token. Click Save to create the token.

    The token is automatically generated and added to the API tokens grid.

  3. You can add/edit an existing token's description by clicking the edit icon in the Action column.
  4. You can delete a token using the delete icon in the Action column.

Note that:

  • API tokens do not expire.
  • API tokens inherit the permissions of the user who created them.
  • API tokens cannot be shared with other users; they may be used only by the user who created them.
  • No labels
