Requesting A Document Manager API License Key

This article outlines how to obtain a Document Manager API license key.

The SOLIDWORKS Document Manager API requires a license key that is only available to SOLIDWORKS customers who are currently under subscription. Each user of SOLIDWORKS Document Manager API must have a license key.

Existing users must request new SOLIDWORKS Document Manager API license keys beginning with SOLIDWORKS Document Manager API 2015 FCS and renew their SOLIDWORKS Document Manager API license keys when installing any new major release of SOLIDWORKS or the SOLIDWORKS Document Manager API.

1. Browse to https://www.solidworks.com/support/subscription/key-request/ and log in with your SOLIDWORKS or 3D Experience login.

2. Click on New Key Request Form on the right-hand side and complete the fields.

3. Check the box to agree to the terms and click Submit.

A SOLIDWORKS Document Manager API license key is emailed to you upon approval of your request. Please check SOLIDWORKS online help for version compatibility information.

When requesting or renewing a SOLIDWORKS Document Manager API license key, you are presented with a dialog containing a list of checkboxes showing the categories of functionality that a SOLIDWORKS Document Manager API license key controls. You can select more than one category.
