    Nokia PRO membership compuslory for API partnering?

    Hi There,
    I want to use a private API to develop a VoIP application.
    On eStore when i click on the link for API Partnering Request , It says that you need to be a PRO member to access this link.

    Does this mean only PRO members have access to private APIs???

    Regards
    Biju

    On the same page there is a link which invites you to create a free eStore account and that's what you need for API Partnering. The eStore is however hosted on the Forum Nokia PRO side of the site therefore the confusing error message ...

    More details about the API Partnering available at http://www.forum.nokia.com/I_Want_To...nical_Support/

    Thank you ITOMUTA.
    I see 90Euros as the charge to purchase a request.
    From where can i get to know the costing of the API?

    Regards

    Re: Nokia PRO membership compuslory for API partnering?

    Before API Partnering you are supposed to open a Technical Support request (currently 170€) through which your request is analyzed from a technical perspective (whether the requested feature can be implemented, if it requires internal APIs or is the SDK enough, maybe even suggest alternative solution based on publicly available APIs ...) and it will be the conclusion of that support request that would indicate whether an internal API is needed and if so you are given the option of applying for API Partnering.

    The support request is mandatory. The only case when you can directly go for an API Partnering is if your already granted license must be renewed (new project, expired contract date, new platform version on which you want to run your project). If any technical analysis is required, like if you need a confirmation that the API you already have works on a different platform version, you are required to buy technical support first.

    Now you would buy and API Partnering case (90€) and here you ask for access to the API identified in the support case. The focus here is on business reason which must be good enough so that Nokia is convinced to grant you an API which is not considered to be stable enough to be made publicly available, or which is known to change, ... Once such considerations analyzed you will eventually receive the partnering approval or a polite "No"

    If the API Partnering was approved your company will have to sign a license agreement that limits the use of the API to the specified project and on the specified platform release and that's it, you will get the API package.

    There is no extra cost. To be clear, Nokia is not selling the APIs, you're just asked to pay a fee covering the costs of analyzing your request.
