Obtain an API Key

Go to the API tab on the General Settings page on Infoset Dashboard to get your API key.

Setup Environment Variables to Manage Your API Key

Manage your Infoset API keys by storing them in Environment Variables or in Web.config. It is a good practice to keep your data and configuration settings separate. This way to you can change your Infoset API key without changing your code. Also, we strongly advise against storing sensitive data directly in your code.

Setup Environment Variables using the UI:

  1. Press Win+R and run SystemPropertiesAdvanced
  2. Click on Environment Variables
  3. Click New in user variables section
  4. Type INFOSET_API_KEY in the name. (Make sure this name matches the name of key in your code)
  5. Type actual API Key in the value
  6. Restart the IDE and you're done!

Setup Environment Variables using CMD:

  1. Run CMD as administrator

Here are few example to get and set API Keys programatically:

Get Environment Variable

var apiKey = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("INFOSET_API_KEY");

Set Environment Variable

var setKey = Environment.SetEnvironmentVariable("INFOSET_API_KEY", "YOUR_API_KEY");

Install Package

To use Infoset in your C# project, either get the source code and build the package, or grab it automatically with NuGet package manager:

PM> Install-Package Infoset

Once you have the Infoset library installed, you can include calls to them in your code. For a sample implementation, see the .NET Example folder.


Quick Start

The following is the minimum needed code to send a simple request. Use this example, and modify the apiKey variable:

using Infoset;
using Newtonsoft.Json;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace Example
  internal class Example
    private static void Main()

    static async Task Execute()
      var apiKey = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("NAME_OF_THE_ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE_FOR_YOUR_INFOSET_KEY");

      string data = @"{'apikey':'" + apiKey + "', 'responseFormat':0}";
      Object json = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<Object>(data);
      var options = new InfosetClientOptions
        // ReliabilitySettings = new ReliabilitySettings(1, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1), TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10), TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1)),
        Host = "",
        Version = "v1/wsConnect.asmx"

      var client = new InfosetClient(apiKey, options.Host, null, options.Version);

      var response = await client.RequestAsync(InfosetClient.Method.POST, json.ToString(), urlPath: "getAccountId");
      var ds_response = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<Dictionary<string, dynamic>>(response.Body.ReadAsStringAsync().Result);

      var statusCode = response.StatusCode;
      var result = response.Body.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;

After executing the above code, statusCode should be 200 and result should contain your Account ID.

You can see all available functions and their parameters here.

Web Proxy

var options = new InfosetClientOptions
  // ReliabilitySettings = new ReliabilitySettings(1, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1), TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10), TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1)),
  Host = "",
  Version = "v1/wsConnect.asmx"
var apiKey = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("NAME_OF_THE_ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE_FOR_YOUR_INFOSET_KEY");
var proxy = new WebProxy("http://proxy:1337");
var client = new InfosetClient(proxy, apiKey, options.Host, null, options.Version);
