The SaaS module is the location in Oomnitza where all of your SaaS applications are stored. This screen lets you review, report on, and configure your SaaS assets.
Populating SaaS Assets
The SaaS module isn't much help if you don't have any SaaS software to manage. To populate this module, you'll need to integrate Oomnitza with your SSO provider (G Suite, Okta, or One Login).
To learn how to populate this module, check out our article on Setting up the SaaS Module.
The list is generated according to the information received from the integrated SSO provider.
Rather than having solely the Block and List Views, the SaaS module has 3 views to switch between:
- Dashboard view
- Block view
- List view
This view is opened by default and allows you to see and create charts based on the SaaS and contract information. The Dashboard view functions in much the same way as Oomnitza's Dashboard module, and these views can be configured in the same manner detailed in our article on The Dashboard and Widgets.
The SaaS Block View looks a little different than you may be used to from using the Assets or People modules in Oomnitza.
- Search pane (collapsed)
- Quick filters
- Total spend value
- Blocks representing SaaS applications
- Block details configurator
The List view functions much as it does in other modules. It displays a table of all software which can be filtered down to more specific searches.
With the release of Oomnitza's SaaS module, you may notice some significant changes to how we display this information.
For longtime Oomnitza users, you may notice some differences between the Block view in the SaaS and Desktop software modules and the traditional block view.
To aid in quickly visualizing information in the Software module, we display an expanded version of the block view, which surfaces a degree more information. You can see everything that's shown below.
|Tracked SaaS block||Ignored SaaS block|
|Tracked SaaS block actions||Ignored SaaS block actions|
- Software Logo
- Software name
- Software category
- Software details
- Actions menu
- Catalog linking
- Data source
- 'Ignored' status
You'll also notice that the information page appears different. At the time of writing, Oomnitza is in the process of migrating all screen to this interface, and with the release of SaaS, you'll notice that this is updated for Desktop, Saas, and Users.
Much like the expanded block view, the updated information page offers a means to view more information at a glance, while making the existing information more explicit.
The left-hand column displays a similar set of information as seen in the block view.
The right-hand field displays fields with values that are either available for editing or not depending on your permissions.
The chart at the bottom left shows the software usage dynamics for the last 6 whole calendar months. You can place the cursor over one of the 6 periods to see the detailed information
If a field has an Oomnitza icon (), it means that this is a 'system' field and can not be customized.
