Make a "PackageInfo" Apex class available for managed code to call at runtime

Apex & Visualforce

Managed packages have limited visibility to the users actually assigned to that package and other information.

I suggest a new Apex class called PackageInfo be available at runtime. It could be restricted to only be available from code in the non-system namespace and only return data about the namespace its running in.

Think of it like you might UserInfo, but it's available for your own code to help understand your package and how its implemented. The package should make relevant information available like...
  • Current License Status (String)
  • Current License Expiration Date (Date)
  • IDs of Licensed Users (List<ID>)
  • IDs of Profiles of the Licensed Users (List<ID>)
  • Namespace (String)
  • Version Info (custom Version class?)
  • LMA oAuth Token to give us a mechanism for talking directly back to our LMA org using the REST API. Long shot, I know, but would be handy.

For example, I'd be able to add code like...

IF (PackageInfo.getLicenseStatus() == 'Trial') {
     // add more help info to the page and guide the user more
}
