BAO API Geographic Restrictions

I am attempting to create a report through the REST API for BAO.  I have a project that is set up already that returns reports successfully as long as it's within a certain geographic area.  If I go outside this area I receive a 'GEOFENCE' warning that my subscription does not allow this geographic input.

I can, however, run reports outside this geographic area if I do it simply using a web browser hitting the REST endpoint.

Does anyone have suggestions/input as to what is going on with the 'GEOFENCE' error I am receiving when attempting to run these reports through my application?

Hi and thank you for your question and patience.  We will actually need more information about your request.

If you are using the SDKs (Flex or Silverlight), you are actually calling the Online API REST services "under the hood" and the geofence (if your account is configured with it), will be enforced whether your consuming the API through the SDKs or REST services.

Please feel free to contact the Online API SDK Support by following the instructions below.  This will ensure that your support request is routed to the right personnel to assist you.

Thank you for your question.
