A ping request is made to determine the current time of one of the LaunchKey API servers in an iovation data center. This data is helpful for the amount of time difference between your service and the LaunchKey API servers. As LaunchKey uses JWT, portions of the JWT are time based and may fail if the time difference between systems is too large. The LaunchKey API only allows for a small amount of leeway in time differential. It was therefore necessary to provide a way to synchronize the time with the LaunchKey API. Ping is that vehicle.



The request has no path or query parameters.


Responses will be unencrypted JSON objects with the following attribute:

api_time (string):ISO 8601 Date with the current time of the LaunchKey API server


{"api_time": "2017-11-30T00:41:29Z"}
