SCIM or System for Cross-domain Identification Management is an open standard which helps in automating the user identity lifecycle management process. SCIM Provisioning helps in establishing communication between cloud-based applications, by formalizing the integration between Identity providers (e.g Directories) and Service Providers (i.e Saas apps you need to access). Once SCIM Provisioning is integrated, 'Create,' 'Update,' and 'Delete' operations conducted in the IDP (where user data is kept) are automatically synchronised with the SPs (SaaS apps like Salesforce, AWS, Zoom, and others).This improves the security of user data while also simplifying the user lifecycle management process.
User account provisioning is mostly used by an Organizations, especially IT to grant and regulate access to resources. In order to be effective, an account provisioning method must ensure consistent and simple management of account creation and access to software and data.
Group Provisioning is required when you wish to keep the same user hierarchy and access control in many apps at the same time. Between multiple programs, you may sync users with their correct group names.
Automatic provisioning refers to creating user identities and roles in the cloud applications that users need access to. In addition to creating user identities, automatic provisioning includes the maintenance and removal of user identities as status or roles change.
miniOrange SCIM Provisioning gateway integrates with a wide range of SaaS and Cloud-based applications, directories and Identity Providers.
SCIM Provisioning works with existing web standards making it easy to integrate. As a REST API, the SCIM Provisioning operates using HTTP request methods (GET, POST, DELETE, etc) with a specified programming language to manage user data throughout the identity lifecycle. After establishing SCIM endpoints (identity resources, users, and groups), administrators will encode user identity attributes (e.g username, address, etc). These SCIM objects then operate with a common basic schema to exchange data with cloud applications and domains. In the SCIM environment, despite organization-imposed firewalls, Identity Providers and Service Providers can seamlessly communicate, making SCIM Provisioning an ideal for seamless integration.
Using a centralised system, administrators can automate provisioning and manage many SAAS and cloud-based application accounts, reducing human errors and complexity.

As companies grow and innovate, number of user accounts increases exponentially. Requests to add and delete users, change permissions, and add new types of accounts all take up valuable IT department time. SCIM Provisioning integration makes user data more secure and simplifies the user experience by automating the user identity lifecycle management process. With SCIM, user identities can be created either directly into miniorange, or imported from external systems like HR software or Active Directory. Since it is a standard, user data is stored in a consistent way and can be communicated at once across different apps.
