API/Cloud-based licenses

LicenseKit’s API-based license engine is a great alternative when validating licenses from external license providers, using regular REST API requests.

How does it work?

LicenseKit has an API license service that can fetch licenses from any external API. All you have to do is to provide the service a configuration and a response mapper to map a response to a license.

The response mapper provides you with a strongly typed response. You can then map the response response to a LicenseKit license, which will be validated as normal.

Offline mode

If your software needs to work offline, LicenseKit can cache the last fetched license and ignore any non-license errors that occur during the license validation.
