xslm_get_certificate()asks the license server to return the license certificate that matches the input parameters, including licensing system-maintained status information and settings provided by the administrator.
Identification of server to which this request is being directed.
The Software Publisher UUID of the certificate being requested. It unequivocally identifies the Publisher. A non-zero value must be provided.
ID number of the products certificate being requested. A non-zero value must be provided.
The version of the products certificate being requested. A non-zero value must be provided.
The feature number of the products certificate being requested.
The instance id of the products certificate being requested. A non-zero value must be provided.
A 32-bit arbitrary value created by the application and used as part of the licensing system authentication process. See
Process Descriptionfor more information.
As an input parameter, the length of the buffer to receive the results of the call. A value of zero on input indicates a request for the size of the buffer required to contain the entire results of the call. No data is returned in the buffer when a value of zero is passed.
As an output parameter, the length of data returned, or the size of the buffer required to contain the entire result if the input value was zero.
Note that the buffer must be large enough to contain the entire certificate data area if it is not, no data is placed in the buffer and the output value of cert_buffer_length contains the buffer length required to contain the entire result (note that because the certificate state data may change at any time, the actual size needed may be different from the returned value).
The certificate's update counter. This counter is incremented every time the license certificate values are changed via
xslm_set_admin_policy(). To avoid concurrent updates from taking place, the license server will only permit an update via xslm_set_admin_policy()if the cert_update_seq value passed on that call matches the current value of the license certificates counter.
Buffer in which the results will be returned.
Completion status. Detailed error code directly addressable by the caller. This value is set to XSLM_STATUS_OK if no error occurred. For other messages, see ERRORS.
An area large enough to contain a 16-byte digital signature created by the licensing system from the input parameters and auth_token. Used as part of the licensing system authentication process.
A unique identifier for the particular type of licensing system handling the current license instance. Used as part of the licensing system authentication process.

The function return value gives an overall indication of the success or failure of the call. In addition, the status parameter will be set to one of the following values, to further help point to the reason for a failed request.
- In the future, additional values may be defined for the status variable. An application must not rely upon these being the only possible values.

A license certificate key (publisher_id, product_id, version_id, feature_id, and cert_serial_number) needed to get a certificate can, for example, be obtained by combining a call to
xslm_query_next_level_cert_names()with a call to xslm_query_cert_ids().
A data element structure, CERTIFICATE, followed by a data element structure, CERTIFICATE_RELATED_INFORMATION (see
Data Elementsfor details), unless the buffer is not large enough in which case no data is returned.
