Loftware has added the capability to perform a bulk import of devices and device information into LPS and LLM using the Loftware Reporter Utility (LWReporter). This allows you to easily manage a large number of devices without having to individually configure each device in the LLM Device Configuration Grid. Let’s take look at how this can be accomplished.
To import information for multiple devices into LLM, you must first create a file (in XML format) that contains the ID fields and associated values for your devices. This file is created by adding devices to the LLM Device Configuration Grid and exporting the settings from LLM.
