What is SCIM Provisioning?
SCIM is an open standard that simplifies cloud identity management and allows user provisioning to be automated across multiple domains.
SCIM provisioning allows companies to manage user identities in the cloud efficiently and easily add or remove users within their enterprise — benefiting budgets, reducing risk, and streamlining workflows.
Without SCIM, IT administrators would have to manually add identifying information needed by the application about users who are allowed to use the application. This manual process takes longer and has a higher margin for error. Using SCIM as a standard protocol for cloud-based applications and services solves this problem and streamlines the management of users, groups, and devices.
How SCIM Works
SCIM is a REST and JSON-based protocol that defines a client and server role. A client is usually an identity provider (IDP), like Active Directory, or AD, that contains a robust directory of user identities. A service provider (SP) is usually a SaaS app, like Box or Slack, that needs a subset of information from those identities. When changes to identities are made in the IdP, including create, update, and delete, they are automatically synced to the SP according to the SCIM protocol. The IdP can also read identities from the SP to add to its directory and to detect incorrect values in the SP that could create security vulnerabilities.
For end users, this means that they have seamless access to applications for which they’re assigned, with up-to-date profiles and permissions.
There are various benefits of SCIM provisioning, including:
- Automate user onboarding and offboarding
- Improve SaaS customer satisfaction
- Enable User Management / Provisioning Self-Service for your SaaS customer(s)
- More accurately manage SaaS customer user fees
- Centralize identity management
- Improve security
- Reduce operational costs
- Eliminate manual errors
With SCIM, SaaS admins no longer need to coordinate manually with SaaS customers tocreate and delete user accounts in web apps — which saves them valuable time and reduces the chance for errors in the authorization levels granted to users.
