xslm_get_license_instances()asks the license server to return the complete set of license instance records which match the specified key fields. When all of the input key parameters have values of zero, the server returns all valid license instance records.
Identification of server to which this request is being directed.
The software publisher identification for all license instance records to be returned. It uniquely identifies the publisher. A value of zero indicates that instance records for all publishers within the specified server_id are to be returned. Whenever a value of zero is used for this parameter, the product_id, version_id, and feature_id parameters must all also have values of zero.
ID number of the product for which all license instance records are to be returned. A value of zero indicates that all the instance records, which match the server_id and publisher_id are to be returned. Note that whenever a value of zero is used for this parameter, the version_id and feature_id parameters must all also have values of zero.
The version of the product for which all license instance records are to be returned. A value of zero indicates that all the instance records, which match the server_id, publisher_id, and product_id, are to be returned. Note that whenever a value of zero is used for this parameter, the feature_id parameter must also have a value of zero.
The associated feature number of the product for which all license instance records are to be returned. A value of zero indicates that all the instance records, which match the server_id, publisher_id, product_id, and version_id, are to be returned.
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 query. A value of zero on input indicates a request for the size of the buffer required to contain the all the results of the query. No data is returned in the key buffer when a value of zero is passed. As an output parameter the length of usable data returned in the key buffer or the size of the buffer required to contain the entire query result if the input value was zero.
Note that the buffer must be large enough to contain the entire license instances data area. If it is not, no data is placed in the buffer and the output value of this parameter contains the size of the buffer length needed to contain the entire result. Note also that because the license instances data may change at any time, the actual size needed may be different from the returned value.
Pointer to the buffer into which the query results are returned.
Completion status. Detailed error code directly addressable by the caller. This value is set of XSLM_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.
Return Value Status Value Explanation XSLM_OK XSLM_STATUS_OK No errors occurred XSLM_PARTIAL_DATA Invalid license instance record(s) encountered. Only valid instance records returned.

A sequence of 1 or more LICENSE_INSTANCES_INFORMATION data elements (see
Data Elementsfor details), unless the output buffer is not large enough to contain all data elements matching the query in which case no data is returned.
