SCIM - System for Cross-Domain Identity Management

SCIM is a specification created to make the management of users between different services and applications easier. A common schema is used for User information which allows services to pass their user data without having to think about how the information is stored in your own service. By provisioning users with SCIM you can simply set the up the mapping of your Users attributes to SCIM-attributes, which then will be mapped to attributes in the IFS User database, and also create new Users if they do not already exist.

Attribute Mapping

This mapping table is to be used by Administrators when configuring a new Provisioning Service. The SCIM Attribute maps to certain fields of the IFS Cloud database. When first creating a new User through provisioning, a unique Identity will be created. This Id is used as a unique identified for the new User, and will be generated based on the values of the SCIM attributes name.givenName and name.familyName.
