Can I pull the current DEM Usage via API?

We are working to pull Dynatrace usage via API to report to our ServiceNow Software Asset Management module. We are able to pull DDU via the builtin:billing.ddu.metrics.total metric. Is there a way i can get the DEM value? I am a ServiceNow developer and not very familiar with the Dynatrace License reporting capabilities so any help is appreciated.

I don't know of a direct way to get DEM consumption directly.

But we are using the billing.* metrics to get it's components (synthetic, sessions, ...) and than calculate the overall DEM consumption, but with every detail. It works well and numbers match 😀

I see Antonio.
I do similar for host units metric by querying oneagent for monitored hosts and adding up their

consumedHostUnits amount. 
can you suggest what my query should look like to get what you have?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You should start first in Data Explorer, with the billing.* metrics (eg. billing.apps.web.sessionsWithoutReplayByApplication). Once you get what you need, you just have to make the equivalent API calls.
