Our goal is to support our customers’ needs, wherever they might be. To this end, we’re introducing the Surface API Management Service, aimed at simplifying how you access information about your devices, coverage and insights.

This service builds on the familiar Surface Management Portal, enabling IT admins to directly access Microsoft coverage and entitlement information for their devices via API endpoints. It’s a practical enhancement for those already using the portal, designed to make device management more straightforward.


The service at a glance

The Surface API Management Service is an API management system that allows you to gain access to APIs that provide you with information about your devices. 


These APIs serve as a direct conduit for customers seeking to streamline their asset management processes. By seamlessly connecting to the API, IT admins gain immediate access to critical device and warranty information, essential for effective asset oversight. Tailored specifically for Surface customers, this integration offers a hassle-free solution, eliminating the need for convoluted data acquisition methods. Now, with the simple integration of this API, customers can quickly retrieve pertinent details, empowering organizations to make informed decisions and optimize their asset management strategies.


Our first launch experience will allow current Surface Management Portal users to get their Microsoft coverage and entitlement information for their devices directly through API endpoints. Through our portal you can also see more of the performance and usage of the APIs across the globe with Surface API Management Service Reports.
