To access the SUSHI web service, you must provider either username/password authentication or IP authentication. If you authenticate using an IP address, simply make a request of the server and you will be automatically authenticated. If you use a username/password combination to authenticate then in your SUSHI request put your username and password in the ID field, separated by a colon. i.e. "username:password".
If username/password authentication is used, the requestor ID value should be entered as "username:password" with the client's values substituted. If IP-authentication is used, the requestor ID may be left blank.
The customer number should be entered in the customer ID field. This is normally a known field and can be found on the usage statistics website after signing in.
To authenticate for usage reports, IP authentication or username/password authentication may be used.
The WSDL for the service may be found at:
