To grant the above scopes required permissions and to authorize access to the OAuth client application configured in Flexera’s SaaS Management integration with Salesforce, the user must have the following user role permissions.

User Role Description
Standard User   If you only enable the Application Roster, Application Access, and License Information tasks, then the Standard User permissions are required.
System Administrator       

If you enable the Reclamation task, along with the Application Roster and Application Access tasks, then the System Administrator permissions are required.

To reclaim a license, the user requires Manage User permissions. In the Standard User profiles available in Salesforce, only the System Administrator has these permissions. For more details, refer to the Salesforce Standard Profiles.

 

Note • If you do not wish to use the System Administrator user role, refer to the Salesforce instructions in Create a Secure Salesforce API User to create a custom profile with API Enabled and Manage User permissions.
