SaaS Management integrates directly with Zendesk, so you can view all user activity within the application. The integration gives you the usage data you need to make informed decisions on inactive licenses and any renewal or purchasing options. User engagement data, such as the numbers of times users interact with tickets, can help you determine if their licenses are active or needed.

Integrating with Zendesk

To connect with Zendesk, sign in to Zendesk with an Admin account. SaaS Management needs Admin account access to view the usage data of Zendesk users.

When an agent is suspended, their paid agent seat is still considered occupied. To release the user’s agent seat, the agent must be downgraded to an end user. For more information on setting roles and access, refer to Zendesk’s product documentation.
