Hi Kent

have you already checked the REST APi

As a user with Admin permission you could use the 

/rest/api/1.0/admin/license method described at

and get a result like


    "creationDate": 1331038800000,
    "purchaseDate": 1331038800000,
    "expiryDate": 1372493732817,
    "numberOfDaysBeforeExpiry": 0,
    "maintenanceExpiryDate": 1372493732817,
    "numberOfDaysBeforeMaintenanceExpiry": 0,
    "gracePeriodEndDate": 1372493732817,
    "numberOfDaysBeforeGracePeriodExpiry": 0,
    "maximumNumberOfUsers": 12,
    "unlimitedNumberOfUsers": false,
    "serverId": "<server ID embedded in license>",
    "supportEntitlementNumber": "<support entitlement number embedded in license>",
    "license": "<encoded license text>",
    "status": {
        "serverId": "<actual server ID>",
        "currentNumberOfUsers": 2
