    Default API License and getting started.

    Hi,

    So to be clear, you need a full license in your application AND the fiery to run the API. So for example if you wanted to write an app and put it in playstore/appstore this would be useless unless the user had purchased an LAC for the API?

    I am trying to access the API from chrome using the Postman plugin. If I go to https://servername/live/api/v3/version I get ..

    {
    "AgaliVersion": "3.0.00.29",
    "RubyVersion": "1.9.03.151c",
    "RhythmVersion": "v3.0.04",
    "installed": "2016-03-30T05:46:50+13:00"
    }


    If I try to login using https://servername/live/api/v3/login and POST

    {
    "username": "guest",
    "password":"",
    "accessrights": "apikey"
    }


    I get the response ..

    {
    "authenticated": false,
    "error_code": "",
    "errors": "no accessrights found",
    "fiery": false
    }


    Are the credentials the same as what you use to log in to the fiery CWS? The API is NOT installed as I have read it is not required after a certain version of CWS.

    Ok, So figured out the login process it needs form data rather than raw json. This should be documented in your API. Also RESTfull API's should be stateless.

    Hi,

    Sorry about our late reply.
    The evaluation key from developer.efi.com works for any Fiery servers that has Fiery API enabled but the key will expire in 6 months.

    Once you get your production key, your Fiery servers need license code to be activated.
    The license is associated with your production key. So the app/integration using the production key can only talk to the servers with the license code activated.

    Thanks,
    Yusuke
