ESDService Web Service


Electronic Software Delivery Service (ESD Service) provides interfaces for accessing information related to the Software Delivery Module.


Simple Workflow Using ESD Service APIs

  1. Get the list of accounts that the logged-in user belongs to, that have entitlements, and let the user select an account.

    • Use getEntitledOrganizations API

  2. Display all manufacturers that are on the entitlements for the selected account, and Product Lines, and allow the user to select.

    • Use getManufacturerProductLine API

  3. Display all Download Packages that belong to the selected product line, and allow the user to select a Download Package.

    • Use getDownloadPackages API

  4. Get the compliance information and EULA for the selected Download Package.

    • Use getEULA, acceptEULA APIs

    • Use getComplianceAgreement, acceptComplianceAgreement APIs

  5. If the user is compliant, and has accepted the EULA, then display the files required for that Download Package.

    • Use getDownloadableFiles API

    • If the request for files specifies that EUAL acceptance, and compliance, are required then getDownloadableFiles will return an error and the user should be prompted with an appropriate message.
