Allocation of users to consumption in bulk

Hi,

I have a user list of around 600 Microsoft users in an excel sheet who are already in Flexera, and instead of adding them one-by-one (extremely time consuming) into a licence consumption, I was wondering if there was a way to import all the users from the list into the consumption of a licence at once.

Appreciate any help with this.

Thanks

Hi,

With a Business Import (Business Adapter Studio), you should be able to allocate the users from your list to a license. If you make it generic enough (e.g. incorporat the license name into your list), you should be able to use the same import for multiple use cases, like CALs etc.

If you are unfamiliar with Business Imports, the Flexera HelpNet has some details about it.

Hi,

You can use ComplianceAPIService.

AllocateLicense operation can help you to allocate user to license

https://<fnms.server>/ManageSoftServices/ComplianceAPIService/ComplianceAPIService.asmx?op=AllocateLicense

If you don’t want to perform a lot of coding you can use PowerShell script provided by Chris Grinton.

Attaching example for AllocateLicense call. Replace <fnms.server> with your server name, and use correct userID and licenseID for test.
