LUI API and automation
I would like to request that License Usage Insights portal be API Accessible to allow automation and powershell connectivity. This would help us plug LUI into our internal Asset tool for License tracking across multiple clients
We’re currently reviewing this. The API use case is important and something we’d like to enable for partners in the future.
LUI APIs are currently REST based and public facing… but are not currently documented or optimized for ease of use by external parties such as CSPs.
We will not provide a PowerShell SDK or CMDLET to access LUI, however PS could be used to invoke the REST APIs to script the collection of data.

I second this request - since LUI is only available for Service Providers, I imagine every CSP will ned to be able to do license tracking across clients, with a view to billing on a per-customer basis. This, or custom reports, would be absolutely critical to us.
