Currently if you want to use the Data API to allow data out to a client or service from a FMS17 machine it is metered. This is understandable.
What does happen is that when using the Data API as a tool to exchange data between files on the same server or a FMS with the same FMCert license, it is still metered. Why is this happening when the data never leaves the server? Why is data between servers with the same FMCert metered? It never left the ecosystem of the license contract.
We need to see this updated ASAP.
