Configuring SaaS Manager Connector

IT Asset Management (Cloud)


With the cloud implementation of IT Asset Management, integration with Flexera One SaaS Management is simple. The general prerequisite is that you have licensed Flexera One SaaS Management.

For a license to show in IT Asset Management, you also need to make sure that the following fields of the license have values populated in the Flexera One SaaS Management. For more details about these fields, see Licenses Tab in the Flexera One Help.
  • # of Items Allowed
  • Amount
  • Payment Frequency
  • Effective Date
  • Ending Date

Set up

Go to the IT Asset Management Settings General page (Administration > IT Asset Management Settings > General), select the Integrations tab, expand the SaaS Manager section, and select the Enable SaaS Manager integration check box. There are more details in the online help for that page.
Tip: In the FlexNet Beacon software (from version 14.3.0), there is a separate connector to Flexera One SaaS Management in the group of inventory connections configured with PowerShell. You should ignore that connector. That is available for other customers using on-premises implementations of IT Asset Management; but since you are using the Flexera cloud implementation, integration for you is simpler and quicker, as described above.


No scheduling is required. The import from Flexera One SaaS Management happens automatically as part of the overnight full inventory import and license consumption calculations. This means that from the moment you enable the connector, data from Flexera One SaaS Management appears in your system the next day.


The day after configuring your connector, validate operations by:
  • Identifying a licensed application listed in Flexera One SaaS Management.
  • Finding the same application listed in IT Asset Management, and validate that the appropriate data is recorded. For example, there is a SaaS User license attached (except for Microsoft Office 365, which should have a Named User license attached).
For more information about validation, data rationalization, and connector clean-up, see Deprecating Other Connectors.
