Apptio Service User Setup

The Apptio Frontdoor application is used to create a system account used for the LeanIX-Apptio data integration.  The system account should be assigned the “Datalink Admin” role and should be granted access to your Apptio Cost Transparency environment (or the desired environment for the projects to be used).  The API keys can only be seen and copied during the initial user profile creation so be sure to capture the information to share with LeanIX.

Minimum Required Permissions  

A custom profile can be created to perform the Apptio API upload with the minimum permissions required.  If desired, create a custom role and assign it the following permissions:

  • AccessDev
  • UploadData
