User story

As a PRTG user, I want ...

Details of user story

I am working on Fully automated rebuilding of my PRTG Server in the cloud. As part of the automation the server OS is occasionally replaced by a New Template. This causes the server to loose activation and makes reactivating difficult. I would like to be able to automate the deactivation of the existing server as part of the build process and also add activation of the New instance. Ideally this should be doable with a simple API call requesting the Deactivation or Activation of the Server.

Acceptance criteria

Update API to allow management of License. EG http://yourserver/api/status.json?Activation=False http://yourserver/api/status.json?Activation=True&licensename=****&licensekey=****
