SCIM or System for Cross-domain Identification Management is an open standard that allows for the automation of user provisioning. In essence, SCIM provisioning allows organizations to efficiently manage user identities in the cloud and add or remove users, which benefits budgets, reduces risk, and streamlines operations. 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).
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 automates the Provisioning and De-provisioning process by utilising a standardised REST API with data written in JSON or XML that specifies the client and server roles and enables for the seamless and safe transfer of user identification data. SCIM provisioning is simple to implement since it is compatible with current web model standards.
The Identity Provider (IDP), which stores all of the user's information and identity, is usually a client. Service Providers are SaaS/cloud-based apps that require information from the Identity Provider.'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), or any IDP may 'Read' the user information from the SP and add it to its directory.This improves the security of user data while also simplifying the user lifecycle management process.
Using a centralised system, administrators can automate provisioning and manage many SAAS and cloud-based application accounts, reducing human errors and complexity.
Streamlining user lifecycle management across apps will increase team productivity by automating record monitoring, onboarding and offboarding, or inadequate partner-partner user interactions.
Automated real time provisioning and elimination of idle user accounts/licenses cuts down the organizational costs
