Synopsis
This article describes how to retrieve licensing information via DMI.
Problem or Goal
The installed licenses can be viewed under System > Configuration > Licensing and can also be obtained via XML export via Maintenance > Import/Export > Export XML, the licensing information is contained within:
<system>
<configuration>
<licensing>
<licenses>
Both these methods require an administrator to log into each PCS/PPS and manually extract the licensing information, the administrator would like to have a way to retrieve the licensing information via a method that can be automated.
Cause
Solution
To obtain license information, the correct RPC command to issue is get-license-inventory.  

This will return the following license information:
  • License key
  • License key validity
  • License SKU name
  • Any start and end dates for subscription licenses
<license-information>
<license>
<name>john paul ringo george zippy</name>
<state>valid</state>
<licensed-skus>
<sku>
<name>CONSEC-PSA-EVAL-8W</name>
</sku>
</licensed-skus>
<date-based-information>
<start-date>2017-05-11T12:28:57</start-date>
<end-date>2017-07-06T12:28:57</end-date>
<time-remaining>P55DT23H49M</time-remaining>
</date-based-information>
</license>
</license-information>
</license-inventory>
</rpc-reply>

Currently the REST API support does not include an equivalent command, it is under consideration for inclusion in a future update of the REST API framework.
