Flexera SaaS Management enables the ingestion of vendor data in three ways:
Direct integrations are out-of-the-box managed applications for vendors such as Salesforce, ServiceNow, and Microsoft 365. There are approximately 60 managed applications within the SaaS Management catalogue.
Single Sign-On (SSO) discovery uses providers such as Okta to discover the applications that have been configured within your SSO and are being used by the users in your organization.
Indirect integrations occur when the vendor or application is present within the SaaS Management catalogue, but data needs to be ingested using scripting against our public APIs. There are approximately 26,000 indirect integrations currently in the SaaS Management catalogue. While many Flexera customers and partners currently use our indirect integrations to ingest data and understand optimization opportunities, we also recognize that having to develop scripts in languages such as Python or PowerShell can be a barrier.
To remove this barrier, the Flexera SaaS Management (FSM) Data Ingestion Utility is a client-based Windows desktop tool providing a code-free method to ingest data from your organization’s multiple SaaS applications. It enables the ingestion of data from:
CSV file sources
A combination of both sources
Allowing you to easily ingest data and optimize the SaaS vendors that are in use within your organization.
To download the utility's MSI file for installation, refer to the attachment in this article.
