In the application cost report we want you to add a cost and quantity purchased of each application, giving you the chance to leverage cost control for all your SaaS apps with single-sign-on (SSO) through Entra ID. We recommend you to run Bsure for at least 30 days to have enough data to consider whether you have a potential saving on an application. To input your cost and quantity purchased for the different applications click this link: Configure application cost report.

User sign-ins will start from the day you install Bsure Insights or from the time Bsure patch your instance and keep information for the period you entered when installing Bsure Insights Azure Marketplace app. Contact to change this setting if needed.
