The IAmazonAWSMarketplaceMetering type exposes the following members



Asynchronous operations (methods ending with Async) in the table below are for .NET 4.5 or higher. For .NET 3.5 the SDK follows the standard naming convention of BeginMethodName and EndMethodName to indicate asynchronous operations - these method pairs are not shown in the table below.

Public Method BatchMeterUsage(BatchMeterUsageRequest)

BatchMeterUsage is called from a SaaS application listed on the AWS Marketplace to post metering records for a set of customers.

For identical requests, the API is idempotent; requests can be retried with the same records or a subset of the input records.

Every request to BatchMeterUsage is for one product. If you need to meter usage for multiple products, you must make multiple calls to BatchMeterUsage.

BatchMeterUsage can process up to 25 UsageRecords at a time.

Public Method BatchMeterUsageAsync(BatchMeterUsageRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the BatchMeterUsage operation.

Public Method MeterUsage(MeterUsageRequest)

API to emit metering records. For identical requests, the API is idempotent. It simply returns the metering record ID.

MeterUsage is authenticated on the buyer's AWS account, generally when running from an EC2 instance on the AWS Marketplace.

Public Method MeterUsageAsync(MeterUsageRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the MeterUsage operation.

Public Method ResolveCustomer(ResolveCustomerRequest)

ResolveCustomer is called by a SaaS application during the registration process. When a buyer visits your website during the registration process, the buyer submits a registration token through their browser. The registration token is resolved through this API to obtain a CustomerIdentifier and product code.

Public Method ResolveCustomerAsync(ResolveCustomerRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the ResolveCustomer operation.
