Import hosts allocated the license manually in Flexera One to the licensed hosts group in Turbonomic.

Currently, Flexera One target imports the following type A hosts to the licensed hosts group in Turbonomic but not type B.

A: hosts that are running Windows VMs and have been detected consuming the license.
B: hosts that have been manually allocated the license in the Flexera UI.

In Flexera One, users can allocate a Windows license even to hosts that are not running Windows VMs.
The license allocation to the hosts indicates the Flexera user's willingness to give priority VMs placement to those hosts.
For integration with Flexera One to be more effective, type B hosts above should also be able to be imported to the licensed hosts group in Turbonomic.

Please refer to the urls below for details about license allocation in Flexera One.

    Thanks Erico. We did consider this during the build of the Flexera integration feature however it was determined that this was not technically possible to accomplish today given the current API features of Flexera.

    I will mark this as not under consideration however I do invite others to upvote and comment so that we can get a sense of the overall requirement here.
