Explanation

HR Roster

Connects to your organization’s HR Roster. Once your HR Roster is integrated, you will see this list of users after 24 hours in the SaaS application detail’s Users tab.SaaS Management uses this roster as a source of truth for your organization allowing you to track users and usage across applications, as well as identify Suspicious Activities found within your application environment.

Important:It is recommended to enable one HR Roster in your SaaS Management instance to avoid duplicate user information.

If you need a manual upload of your organization’s HR Roster, contact your SaaS Management representative or Flexera Support to upload the SaaS Management Manual Import HR Form (this link downloads the form SaaSManagementManualHRForm.xlsx ). All uploaded files must contain the appropriate headers for data matching.
