devot:ee Licenses API for Commercial Developers

version 1.0.0

The Licenses API allows developers to request information from their account about licenses they've sold in JSON format via a secure request. This is a simpler version of our Purchased Items API. If you are having trouble connecting (for example, you only get an "Authorization Required" message) please contact us so we can confirm your member account has the proper permissions.

Post Variables

The API expects two things: your API key and your secret key. If you're a developer, your keys can be found on your main member page.

$api_key    = "a123ffa2345bfd6ee7f8cfe90c123e5"; // Your API key
$secret_key = "c1b2dd34afa567890a12bacfa34bc5a56df78"; // Your secret key

Response Fields

For a valid login the API returns a JSON array containing the following:

count - (int) items returned by the request
licenses - (array)
    item - Product title
    purchase_date - Date item was purchased (in YYYY-MM-DD format). 
    order_number - The devot:ee order number
    license_key - UUID license key
    customer_name - Customer's screen name 
    customer_first_name - Customer first name 
    customer_last_name - Customer last name
    customer_email - Customer's email 

Example Usage

Below is some sample code (remember to wrap in PHP tags) for you to get started. Please note all the CURLOPT values, including the USERAGENT. Please note there should be no trailing slash on the API URL.

$api_key    = "a123ffa2345bfd6ee7f8cfe90c123e5"; // Your API key
$secret_key = "c1b2dd34afa567890a12bacfa34bc5a56df78"; // Your secret key

// Create the post string (Key version; recommended)
$post = array(
  'api_key'    => $api_key,
  'secret_key' => $secret_key

// Process 
  $url = "";
  $ch = curl_init($url);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS,http_build_query($post));
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
  $response = curl_exec($ch);

echo "<pre>".print_r( json_decode($response), TRUE)."</pre>";
