I want to get license activation status with Wowza REST API

I’m trying to use the REST API to get Wowza Streaming Engine activation status.

Is there such functionality in the REST API?

With this endpoint your can check the Wowza Streaming Engine license @Takayuki Nishi:

GET /v2/servers/{serverName}/licenses

curl example:

curl - X GET --header 'Accept:application/json; charset=utf-8' --header 'Content-Type:application/json; charset=utf-8' http://localhost:8087//v2/servers/{serverName}/licenses'

Possible responses are:

HTTP Status Code    Reason   
200    Ok   
400    Bad Request   
402    Payment Required   
404    Not Found   

200 "Ok" will mean that the server is licensed.

Either a 400 or 402 response will show that the server is not licensed or payment is due. 404 means that the Server.license file was not located.

Let me know please if that is was you were looking for…

I have successfully acquired the license information. Thank you very much.

Excellent! Thanks so much for letting me know.

is there an url where i get the remaining time of that particular license?

Any questions about how long you have left for your license must go to
You can also click on My Account at the top of the page to view your license info, there is no url to view the status of a license for privacy purposes.

i meant on my own system. like the check if the license is currently valid.


as my server “knows” the date, i should be able to get that information programmatically, too.

hmmm…not sure about that but I can check for you.

No we don’t have anything that would give you a response telling you the remaining time on your license @josef_radingerm, but I can see why that would be beneficial. All we have right now are the responses you see above as far as good or bad license and why not if bad. Sorry about that.

thanks for checking. maybe a new feature for some new version.
