The Usage Data api retrieves one months worth of account usage and charges. The result is an array of usage types and contains values for usage, rate, cost, estimated usage, and estimated cost.

Example Code (PHP)

    $request = array(
        'command' => '',
        'api_key' => 'APX4GKLM0RKQLSP2FBO1ROPKSSW47DZE',
        'timestamp' => time(),
        'cdn' => 158,
        'starttime' => '2024-06-01'   /* optional */
        //Create request signature
    $json_request = json_encode($request);
    $sig = base64_encode(hash_hmac('sha256', $json_request,
        '8fc8c48da81e6a2a06a9556379bf798af508dc0792497c678b4c3532ba8b637f', true));
    $request['signature'] = $sig;
    $json_request = json_encode($request);
    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, ''); // Set the URL
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true); // Perform a POST
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); // If not set, curl prints output to the browser
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false); // If set, curl returns headers as part of the data stream
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, array('json' => $json_request)); //'Json' string or 'PHP' serialized return
    //If your PHP host does not have a proper SSL certificate bundle, you will need to turn off SSL Certificate Verification
    //This is dangerous, and should only be done temporarily until a proper certificate bundle can be installed
    //curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false); // Turns off verification of the SSL certificate.
    //curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false); // Turns off verification of the SSL certificate.
    $response = curl_exec($ch); //Execute the API Call
    if (!$response) {
        die('Failed to connect to ScaleEngine API');
    //Decode the response as an associative array 
    $arrResponse = json_decode($response, true); 
    if ($arrResponse) {
        //Operation completed successfully
        //TODO Add work here
    } else {
        //Operation failed
        echo 'An error occured processing your request:';
