By default, the FlexNet Beacon creates a scheduled task named “Upload Flexera logs and inventories” that looks for files to upload by searching the contents of the Incoming folder (%ProgramData%\Flexera Software\Incoming). This task searches the full list of folders located in Incoming, in alphabetical order.
FlexNet beacon versions 18.1 (2022 R1.1) and later also configure a second scheduled task named “Upload Flexera inventories." This task solely looks for inventory files so it can upload them quickly if there is a backlog of other files awaiting upload (for more details, see the Inventory Beacon Change Log).
To manually configure a scheduled task similar to "Upload Flexera inventories" on earlier beacon versions, follow the steps below.
Open the Task Scheduler.
Right-click on Upload FlexNet Beacon status and select Export.
Import the exported task.
Give the task a name. Upload FlexNet Inventory is the task name used in this example.
On the actions tab, select Edit.
In the Arguments section, change UploadRule=BeaconStatus to UploadRule=Inventory.
Save the task.
Manually start the task.
