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. The Technology partners must provide the exact client name and request the API serial number from Blackbaud support. 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.

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.
