License does not work through REST API

Reported by: rgrp Owned by: dread
Priority: major Milestone: v1.0

Cc: Repository:


Presence of license_id field in JSON input show below breaks REST API (with weird error about int not being subscriptable as if license_id field is being subscripted).

Using normal license field does not cause breakage but has no effect.

(Also think we should remove license_id from the API since there is no guarantee this cross system compatible since locally generated on install).
