just wanted to ask if someone ever tried to upload .ndi files directly to FlexeraOne without using a beacon?
So basically something like this:
FlexNet Agent generates inventory -> ndupload.exe uploads generated .ndi file to https://data.flexnetmanager.eu/ManagesoftRL
Has anyone experience with this?

The agent will fail to upload directly to Flexera One. It has to go through the beacon as the beacon has the authentication settings needed for Flexera One to accept the file.

Yes, the authentication settings are contained in the config for the beacon and then stored in the registry. While it is possible to configure the agent to use authentication, it is not possible to configure it to use the beacon authentication as you also have to decrypt the password.

Yes, that is how the beacon authenticates to Flexera One
