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
  • Vendor APIs
  • A combination of both sources

This allows you to quickly ingest data and optimize the SaaS vendors you use within your organization.

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. The SaaS Management catalog contains approximately 60 managed applications.
  • Single Sign-On (SSO) discovery uses providers such as Okta to discover the applications configured within your SSO and used by your organization's users.
  • Indirect integrations occur when the vendor or application is present within the SaaS Management catalog, but data needs to be ingested using scripting against our public APIs. There are approximately 26,000 indirect integrations currently in the SaaS Management catalog. While many Flexera customers and partners currently use our indirect integrations to ingest data and understand optimization opportunities, we also recognize that developing scripts in languages such as Python or PowerShell can be a barrier.

Use the attachment in this article to download the utility's MSI file for installation. For more details, see Flexera SaaS Management Data Ingestion Utility.

FSM Data Ingestion Utility patch available

An issue was identified when using the Flexera SaaS Management (FSM) Data Ingestion Utility to ingest consumption-based usage into SaaS Manager, such as when ingesting DocuSign envelopes. The consumption data may not upload to Flexera One.

A patch to address this issue is available and will be included in the utility's next release.

Apply the patch

  1. Download the FlexeraDataIngestionUtility_5006_Patch_1.zip file attached to this article.
  2. Close the Data Ingestion Utility if it’s running. If you’re also running the Data Ingestion Utility as a service, it will need to be stopped.
  3. Back up the Data Ingestion Utility installation directory.
  4. Extract the files from the patch zip file and replace the existing files in the Data Ingestion Utility installation directory.
  5. If necessary, restart the service.

Hi Tertius,

The .msi that is included in this KB does have the API support, we just reset the versioning when we moved from Early Access into production release.

You should see the API option in the right hand panel of the tool.

Thanks

I was able to import the refresh token successfully, but now I'm getting an error when I attempt to add my organization, "Organization ID does not exist. Please enter a valid organization ID. ". What could be the cause for this?

Good day tnunes, 

the Org ID will only be the 5 digit ID after ORG in your URL for FLexera so only place the 5 digits here. One: https://app.flexera.com/orgs/XXXXX

For the Organization Name make sure that if you have any spaces in your org name these are exactly the same as seen in Flexera One portal. the Org name is seen top right corner when logged into Flexera One. 

they need to match exactly or you will get this error.

Just wanted you guys to know, I just installed FSM being a new client with Flexera. Installing the MSI attached shows up in control panel as version 5.0.0.0. I then ran through the patch instructions and the version never changed. This is misleading, especially when we will need to put in tickets to support for issues with this utility. Please have your developers fix this
