Is there a Business Adapter for the new Visual Studio Subscription Administration Portal?

Jump to solution

It appears Microsoft has rolled out a new Visual Studio Subscription Administration Portal. Is there a business adapter that will pull license assignments from this portal into Flexera?

A "productized" integration does not exist.  The current approach would be:

1) Extract the current subscriptions and assigned users from the portal and write a Business Adapter that reads the extract file and imports the allocations into FNMS.  You would need to map the MSDN subscription names from the portal to the corresponding License Name in FNMS, and map the user names/email address from the portal to an FNMS User

2) Create a PowerShell script to connect to the Microsoft Portal via the published API and write a business adapter that reads the extracted content and maps the data per my instructions above.
