Now, paste the license key on the licensekey param and use the below given method to pass these data through the SDK for further processing.

note

When you are in the trial mode, by default the sandbox servers will be used. After purchase it will be upgraded to dedicated server.

const initializeObj = {
licenseKey: `LICENSE_KEY`,
callbackListeners: {},
};
await SDK.initializeSDK(initializeObj);

Request Params#

ArgumentsDescriptionTypeRequired

Request Input for registerMetaData#

ArgumentsDescriptionType
keyName of the KeyString
valueName of the valueString or Boolean or Number

Further to initialize the SDK, you need to add the below callback method during the process.

function messageListener(response) {
console.log("Message Listener", response);
}
