Its possible I'm missing it, but I'm not seeing a way to import inventory from premises SW to cloud SW. Using it solely for asset tracking, so we wont be missing any of the premises features. Have roughly 2000 devices to move, would prefer to not make 2000 new entry's if at all possible. Any tips appreciated, thanks.
I appreciate the response, but I've already looked through all of these, and none of them seem to provide the answers I need. If anything, all I gather is that its not possible to migrate our inventory. I should have mentioned, all of our existing Inventory is manual entry. We have roughly 2,000 devices, in 9 buildings, in 3 towns. I've summarized the links below to save someone in the future a little trouble.
Link 1- 2016 - This link is about the help desk, not inventory, as it doesn't appear to have been a cloud feature yet at that time.
Link 2- 2020 - "It looks to me like the best practice is to not move to the cloud version.
This is a real let down for me. The on-prem version has a ton of actual useful admin feature, like showing switch port configs via SNMP, scanning, multiple subnets, software management (like the uninstall tools), WOL features, etc. But also, I see that the on-prem is not being developed anymore, so that really make me hesitant to keep using it as well.
The cloud version is basically useless in my opinion. It has limited information and no actual tools for managing anything, no reports to speak of, extremely limited alerts, etc.
I am not trying to be snarky here, but the cloud version is not remotely in the same class of utility, and I don't get why they have the same name."

Link 4- 2020- "Using MS SQL covers the inventory export, but how do you then import all the manually entered data into the Spiceworks Cloud Inventory?"
Not wasting my time at all! If nothing else maybe this will draw some attention this direction, as this question has been asked for years with no conclusive answer.
Its likely just due to our situation that we feel cloud based would better serve our needs, however I completely understand the reasoning of everyone else who utilizes the features only found on premises version.
