Imported Data Mapping

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)
Data imported through the Flexera SaaS Manager connector is matched to records previously imported through the same connector into FlexNet Manager Suite (where available), or new records are automatically created.
Important: Imports through the Flexera SaaS Manager connector do not update records created from other connectors such as the Salesforce connector, the Microsoft 365 connector, or the Microsoft Office 365 (deprecated) connector. For information about switching connectors and data clean-up, see Deprecating Other Connectors.
The data flow through this connector is one way – some imported data points (such as the available entitlements) are not editable within FlexNet Manager Suite, and must be edited within Flexera SaaS Manager and reimported in the next nightly full inventory import. A link is provided on the property sheet of relevant licenses to help you switch contexts, and you can also activate a button in the navigation bar for switching to Flexera SaaS Manager (see the Integrations tab of the System Settings page). Similarly, deleting a matched data record (such as a license) within FlexNet Manager Suite does not automatically delete the matching data in Flexera SaaS Manager, where the record must also be deleted manually (otherwise the next inventory import simply recreates the matching record to align with the source data).
Tip: As well, deleting a license within Flexera SaaS Manager does not automatically delete the matching license in FlexNet Manager Suite, even after the next import and license compliance calculation. Similarly, deleting an imported application record does not delete the equivalent managed application within Flexera SaaS Manager. To delete a license or managed application originating in Flexera SaaS Manager and mirrored within FlexNet Manager Suite, you must access each of the records separately in the two products, and manually delete each one.
Almost all SaaS products are handled identically in FlexNet Manager Suite, and represented with SaaS User licenses. The one exception is Microsoft Office 365: because a license entitlement here may authorize use either as a SaaS application or as a locally-installed application on a device, these are handled separately and represented as Named User licenses. As a result, the data flows/storage is quite distinct for this case.
Tip: Flexera SaaS Manager allows you to create one Office 365 license that is linked to multiple plans, such as Office 365 (E1) and Office 365 (E4). Because each plan brings with it changed license entitlements, within FlexNet Manager Suite each plan for Office 365 is automatically given a separate license. This may mean that you see two (or more) licenses in FlexNet Manager Suite that link back to the one source license in Flexera SaaS Manager.
The following tables show properties found in the user interface of Flexera SaaS Manager, and track their initial staging within the compliance database of FlexNet Manager Suite (with the database table name shown in the header of each list), and their common property name in the web interface. Fields in the target table are omitted if no related data is imported.
Note: The following ImportedUser table is populated only for Microsoft Office 365 users. These records are linked to existing user properties (ComplianceUser records) when these already exist; or else new user records are created.
Table 1. User data mapping for Office 365 (ImportedUser table)
FSM object/label FNMS staging fields Example FNMS UI / Notes

Unique ID in user properties

ExternalID

Not visible.

Note: The following ImportedAccessingUser table is used for all SaaS products and licenses with the exception of Office 365. (A user of both kinds of licenses appears separately in each of these imports.) Be aware that, for these SaaS products, there may be accessing users who come from outside your enterprise (for example, if you allow consultants or customers to access your Salesforce pages).
Table 2. User data mapping for other SaaS applications (ImportedAccessingUser table)
FSM object/label FNMS staging fields Example FNMS UI / Notes

External users show their email address. Users from within your enterprise (who have been matched on their email addresses) display their full name as a hyperlink to their user properties.

ImportedClientAccessed AccessEvidenceID

Not visible. A separate record is created for each pairing of a user and application. For example, if UserA accessed two SaaS applications, there are two records.

Hard-coded to 1 for each date

AccessCount

License properties > Consumption tab > Last used count

None. Uses the date when data is imported from Flexera SaaS Manager to FlexNet Manager Suite.

InventoryDate

Inventory device properties > General tab > Last inventory date

Does not use the Effective Date from the License Details tab of the license properties.

Note: The following mapping into the ImportedComputer table creates (if it does not already exist) a dummy device record (needed within FlexNet Manager Suite, but not available in Flexera SaaS Manager). Only a single dummy computer record (for each connector) is required.
