Installatron Plugin Licensing API

Version: 1.1

Introduction

The Installatron Plugin Licensing API is a simple HTTP API that enables Installatron Plugin licensing to be automated. Licenses can also be managed through the standard Installatron Licensing Portal.

How is billing handled?

Annual and monthly licenses are billed on the 1st of the next month. Automatic renewal is enabled by default for all licenses.

How does the API authenticate?

An API authentication key is used in place of your account's login credentials. API authentication keys are managed through your Installatron account.

Sample responses

Sample success response for a monthly license:

List licenses (with optional filtering)

Sample requests

https://secure.installatron.com/account/licenses?api=&authkey=HIDDEN&ip=1.2.3.4

license_id is an optional field that allows the result set to be filtered by license ID specifically.
ip is an optional field that allows the result set to be filtered by license IP address specifically.
q is an optional general search field that allows the result set to be filtered by license hostname, license IP, or license ID. Other filters can be included as well. For example, including :active in the query limits the result to active licenses. Other available filters include :unused and :expiring. If not included, all licenses are displayed.

Sample response for each license

0[license_id]=19847&0[type]=monthly&0[expires]=2015-12-01&0[ip]=1.2.3.4&0[vps]=true

n[license_id] is the internal ID of the license. Format: INT(10).
n[type] is the license term. Valid values are 'monthly', 'annual', and 'lifetime'.
n[expires] is the next date the license will be due for renewal. Format: YYYY-MM-DD
n[ip] is the licensed IPv4 or IPv6 address.
n[hostname] is the licensed server's hostname. This value is for display purposes only and will update from time to time; it is not associated with licensing.

Tip: Passing the full result through PHP's parse_str function makes parsing easy.
