Some applications developed by vendors partnered with Blackbaud may require an API serial number (sometimes referred to as the API license key) to unlock the API module within the partner created code.

Blackbaud Technology partners must:
  1. Provide a screen shot of the Help > About window in RE or FE/EE.
  2. The client's site id for Blackbaud
  3. Request the API serial number from Blackbaud support.
Please note that the API serial number is for use by registered Blackbaud Technology Partners and Solution Providers only. If you are a vendor partnered with Blackbaud and have questions or not sure how to use the API keys/serials/licenses, please refer to the frequently asked questions article below.

Warning: If the client name provided does not exactly match the name shown under Help>About, the key will not work.
Note: It should be noted that the API serial number (provided to Blackbaud Partners) will universally unlock the API module so the purchased API unlock code (provided to clients) will not be needed.
