Article Summary

An extension is an instance of a SaaS application granting access permissions to another SaaS or native application to allow for a seamless user experience across SaaS applications. The User Extensions page displays each individual extension that can be reviewed and managed as its own separate unit.

Click the Assets icon Asset_Icon1 and from the left-pane, select User Extensions.


The User Extensions page opens displaying the default view. Not all of the fields are displayed by default. Use Edit Columns to add or remove columns. Each user can customize what fields appear in their own, personalized default view. For more information, see Setting Page Columns Displays.
