Zendesk Direct Integration

Created by Disha Munoth, Modified on Fri, 12 Jan 2024 at 07:15 AM by Disha Munoth


Spendflo's integration with Zendesk offers a streamlined approach to managing licenses and user permissions directly from the Spendflo App, enhancing your support and customer service workflows. This integration enables efficient license provisioning, user management, and deactivation of Zendesk users.


  • License Utilization Monitoring:
    The Zendesk integration within Spendflo provides insights into license utilization. It identifies users who have not actively utilized Zendesk, allowing administrators to optimize license allocation.

  • Re-claming of Users:
    The integration facilitates the reclaiming of Zendesk users directly from Spendflo. This ensures that inactive users or those who no longer require access can be promptly deactivated, freeing up licenses for other team members.

  • Sync with HR Systems:
    When integrated with HR systems, Spendflo and Zendesk can collectively identify employees who have left the organization. This ensures a quick and accurate process to deactivate their Zendesk licenses.


Zendesk Administrator Role Required: To establish and manage the integration, users must have Zendesk administrator privileges.


The following permissions are required within Zendesk for the integration to work :-

Read & Write Tickets: Permission to view and create/modify tickets.

Read & Write Users: Ability to view and manage user profiles.

Read Audit Logs: Permission to access logs detailing system activities and changes.

Read & Write Organizations: Allows viewing and creating/modifying organizational profiles.

Read & Write HC (Help Center): Access to view and create/modify help center content.

Read & Write Apps: Permission to view and install/create/modify apps.

Read & Write Triggers: Ability to view and create/modify automated triggers.

Read & Write Automations: Access to view and create/modify automation rules.

Read & Write Targets: Permission to view and create/modify specific goals or objectives.

Read & Write Webhooks: Ability to view and create/modify endpoints for real-time information exchange.
