Account.isEntitled

Account.isEntitled

Account.isEntitled

The isEntitled method determines whether or not an Account has an entitlement at the moment the method is called. isEntitled returns a Boolean true/false, and does not return the length of time, past or future, for which the Account is entitled. This will check account entitlements, as well as entitlements associated with the Account’s AutoBills.

Input

srd: sparse response description, a SOAP string (which must be a JSON object), in which you specify the elements you want returned.This parameter enables the calling system to constrain a method call to return only components you specify. This gives you greater control over returned content, and improves response time within the Vindicia platform by reducing the processing needed for the call.

Some fields are required, either practically or in the WSDL, and will be returned regardless of the srd. A null srd returns the complete response.

account: the Account to which this grant applies.

merchantEntitlementId: the merchant’s unique ID for this entitlement.

Output

return: an object of type Return that indicates the success or failure of the call.

entitled: true if the Account is entitled; false if the Account is not.

Returns

In addition to those listed in Standard Return Codes, this call returns:
