Best Practices Question
Is there a way to bulk update licensing information that is already in the appliance?
I am looking for a way to bulk update licensing information.
I need to split a license record from a multiple license count to a record per single license.
This is to assign individual licenses to individual users or devices.
In addition, I would need to bulk update this information to reflect annual Maintenance payments and expiry dates, or subscription renewals.
For example, I have 850 licenses for Trend Micro.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Bulk import is the recommended solution

The only way you could do that would be to import all the license records that you need as new, through the Asset Import function.
It is a bit of pain, data manipulation wise, but can be done.
1, Make sure you copy and paste Software inventory names into your CSV, so they exactly match
2, Use the Primary Key fields (PK) where you can to avoid duplication
3, Save your CSV in UTF-8 format, as that is much less likely to error when importing large numbers of data records
