About this task

The best practice is to limit the software import frequency to be no greater than the frequency of the table cleanup that tracks deleted software in SCCM.

Asset Intelligence is supported in these SCCM plugins:

  • Integration - Microsoft SCCM 2007
  • Integration - Microsoft SCCM 2012 v2
  • Integration - Microsoft SCCM 2016
Important: To improve the performance of your initial SCCM import, you can prevent the system from checking against deleted software prior to the import date. Navigate to Integration - Microsoft SCCM <version> > Data Sources > SCCM <version> Removed Software and enter the current date in the Last run datetime field. This field is populated automatically for each subsequent run of the removed software data source.

To activate the AI scheduled imports:


  1. Navigate to the System Import Sets > Administration > Scheduled Imports.
  2. Set Active to false for these data import schedules:
    • SCCM <version> Software
    • SCCM <version> Removed Software
  3. Set Active to true for these data import schedules:
    • SCCM <version> Software (with AI)
    • SCCM <version> Removed Software (with AI)
