You can automate subscription management for Microsoft Office 365 and Adobe Creative Cloud by importing subscriptions (licenses) and subscribers (authorized users) into Matrix42 Software Asset & Service Management. The MyWorkspace SaaS data provider integrates with the Microsoft Office 365 Portal and Adobe Creative Cloud.
The data provider connects with the SaaS Compliance Cloud Interface powered by MyWorkspace.
See this article if you want to configure this interface for connection to your Microsoft Office 365 Portal.
Due to the limitations of API availability with different Adobe license agreements, this data provider supports "Value Incentive Plan" (VIP) and "Enterprise Term License Agreement" (ETLA) only. Thus there is no support if your Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions fall under "Cumulative License Program" (CLP) or "Transactional License Program" (TLP).
The MyWorkspace SaaS data provider is delivered as an add-on to Matrix42 Software Asset & Service Management and can be downloaded from Marketplace.
To install the data provider:
- Log in as Administrator to Matrix42 Software Asset & Service Management server.
- Ensure that Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 is installed
- Download and unpack the zip archive.
- Run SaaSComplianceInstaller as Administrator.
- Make sure that installation path was defined correctly.
- When a credentials window opens, enter again your credentials with administrator rights.
- Once the installation finishes, perform iisreset.
After the installation, all logged in users should log out and log in again to continue working with Matrix42 Software Asset & Service Management.
Get your SaaS ID
The Office 365 Tenant ID is the directory ID of the Azure Active Directory. You can find it by following the steps provided in the online documentation provided by Microsoft: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Find-your-Office-365-tenant-ID-6891b561-a52d-4ade-9f39-b492285e2c9b (external link).
The Adobe ID is your Enterprise ID in the Adobe Admin Console. To learn more about it, refer to the Adobe help article: https://helpx.adobe.com/enterprise/kb/enterprise-id-faq.html (external link).
Alternatively, you can also find your SaaS ID in your MyWorkspace instance. Open MyWorkspace and navigate to Administration > Connectors and click Azure Active Directory (for Microsoft Office 365) or Adobe Creative Cloud. You will find the ID as part of the URL:
