  1. Hi, is the web service to look up the service tag for dell still working? I tried to use it in a etl transformation plugging in the guid, application name and service tag but it would not retrieve me anything?!!

    It appears that the website does not work anymore. Maybe they changed again. Running the script gives a 503 error

    1. I tried it and it was working, then retried and it was 503 for me. I would leave it a bit and try again later.

  3. It looks like that is it for the SOAP API. You will need to register for an API key to access the REST API.
