The process relies on ITS to create the import structure, extend the "invitation" and help with license transfer (if needed). Internal process listed below.

ASM Admin must create custom location named for imported legacy VPP account (name by person)

  1. Admin to create VPP invitations (sends email link for importation of legacy VPP account)
  2. Have end user accept invitation and select custom location for VPP account
    1. All existing legacy VPP App licenses (distributed or not) move to the ASM custom location
    2. Legacy VPP may transfer licenses from custom to new location (must select each app and transfer per App)
  3. Custom location can be deleted after transfers are complete
