image Back on Tuesday the Configuration Manager product team posted a great article on how to manually create a Microsoft License Statement File for Import into Asset Intelligence:

We have received a number of requests from customers who would like to create their own Microsoft License file for import, similar to the method used for the non-Microsoft License Import File. 

Disclaimer: While it is possible to produce the xml file manually, you should keep in mind that this was not the original intent or design of the feature so the parsing of the xml file may seem surprisingly picky about things that seem harmless.

For Microsoft License import, the Asset Intelligence License Import Wizard requires an xml file with the following columns in this order and with the specified data types.
