API requests must be made using the ApisCP X.509 provided after establishing a vendor relationship with ApisCP. The ApisCP Root Certificates must be used to validate authenticity. These are bundled in /usr/local/apnscp/resources/apnscp.ca or through the public Yum repository.

Requests are made using REST. All vendor requests are prefixed in the vendor/ namespace.

API in development

This API is still under development. This may change! Please direct all feedback to matt@apisnetworks.com

# Managing activation codes

POST vendor/code
Adds a new license code that may be converted into a license. Codes, once created, count toward license allowance regardless of redemption status.

See LICENSE.md for upgrading from an activation code within ApisCP. Codes may be activated at install time as well; however, it's advised to install without specifying a code to use a trial license until satisfied with the system configuration. MySQL and PostgreSQL cannot be changed once provisioned.

SAMPLE CODE

curl -i \
	--cacert ./apnscp.ca \
	-E ./license.pem \
	-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
	-X POST
	-d '{"type":"startup"}' \
	https://license.apiscp.com/vendor/code 

SAMPLE RESPONSE

{"code":"iifGi10LQpKo6cAk2oNKSMMvgz5t2ZC4qcOHN5W8iyssD85TZzYHKhIxUcCB"}
DETAILS

Above creates 1 Startup license activation without any features, such as network restrictions. This means the license may be used anywhere!

Use network restrictions!

Network restrictions limit the license usage on a single machine or subnet. Network restrictions may be set using the features property + net subproperty. In the above payload, the license may be restricted on 64.22.68.1/24 by specifying features.net: 64.22.68.1/24:

-d '{"type":"startup","features":{"net":["64.22.68.1/24"]}}'

Codes accept a variety of parameters that influence generation.

Parameter Type
type REQUIRED enum from set ['mini','startup','pro']
common_name string, max length 64 characters
features array

Likewise features may consist of one or more optional license attributes.

Feature parameter Type Description
net array Network CIDR or IP address restrictions. See warning.

IP restriction usage

IP range must include network gateway. If single IP, then IP listed must be in /24 of gateway. ip route show 0/0 will show primary route on server.

  • 64.22.68.14 is valid if gateway is 64.22.68.1.
  • 64.22.68.14 is not valid if gateway is 64.22.69.1. 64.22.68.1/23 would be used instead.

Rationale Failure to do this would allow one to bind an IP restricted address to server in multi-home environment without ever using it thus satisfying restriction requirement.
