Whenever I have a list of devices to remove from All Inventory page then it becomes monotonous and time taking process.Everytime I need to search for a device and remove it individually. Why can't I just uplaod a list of devices to get it removed from FNMS.

Instead of removing the device you could mark them as ignored. This can be done via a business adapter. That will allow for a pseudo automated solution like you described where you can use a spreadsheet.

i have a business adapter I built and it was fully functional in 2016 R1. When we upgraded to 2018 R2, it no longer commits the changes. That is, to say, the business adapter works and if you look at the status in the ComplianceComputer table, it shows the desired value, but it does not get updated in the Console unless you manually open the record and Save the record. What changed between the versions?

....but the installed applications will still appear in 'Application' reports if the inventory device is left as 'Ignored'. I prefer to ensure there is an associated Asset Record and then retire the Asset which performs complete housekeeping against the Inventory Device.

Just ignoring an Inventory Device still leaves the applications listed with the device record. (FNMS On-Premise)
After the next scheduled reconciliation, the license association is removed but the applications are still associated to the 'Ignored' device.
If you Retire the associated Asset Record the inventory device is automatically set to 'Ignored' and instantly removes the applications and licenses associated to the inventory record.
