A Guide to SIM Cards, ICCIDs and Reports
Table of Contents
A SIM card is uniquely identified by its ICCID (serial number). SIM management systems (eg Jasper) will allow you to search for a SIM using this. the ICCID differs to the contactable number of the SIM card, which is a MSISDN. Which is not visible in our systems. The MSISDN is the number you would send an SMS to if that is required.
There are four places to find the ICCID in our systems
1.OEM Server Details tab:
Click on the 'Details' link for the device:
On the details page the SIM ICCID is shown:
OEM Server - CSV Export
Simply select the devices you wish to export and click the 'CSV Export' button and the details will be downloaded into a .csv file, opening in excel spreadsheets.
This is currently the best way to search OEM by a particular ICCID - download the CSV and search this file.
Search by ICCID using the User Support Function
If your account has the User Support Permission, you will be able to search via ICCID across all assets you have access to in TG.
You can find the SIM ICCID on the 'Advanced' tab of the Asset edit menu. Assets >> Manage Asset >> Edit Asset
Asset List Report
The ICCIDs are also a part of the Asset List report in reports > Fleet Reports > Asset List
To make the ICCID appear on the report, you'll need to customise the columns under 'Advanced Options' and selecting the ICCID in the column view. While the MSISDN appears in the columns, it does not come out into the report yet.
