This service is used to get Client settings and other information that can be useful for our other services, like department list and currency information.
The information is related to currently active Identity in your API session.
See the Authenticate Service for more information on Identities.
# Retrieve client information
To retrieve client information you need to use the GetClientInformation (opens new window) method.
# Get Departments
To get department information you need to use the GetDepartmentList (opens new window) method.
The GetDepartmenList will list all departments that are registered on a client, regardless of whether they are marked as "active" or not in the settings. This is a known issue, but will not be corrected in the current version of the SOAP API.
