Setup Guide to configure User Provisioning (SCIM) into Drupal with OKTA

The System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) is an open standard HTTP based protocol for automating the exchange of user identity information between identity domains, or IT systems. SCIM aims to simplify user provisioning and management in the cloud. For example, as an Identity Provider add, update and delete the user, they are added, updated and removed from the Drupal User Profile. To achieve this functionality Okta provides the User Provisioner with SCIM standard.

If your users are using both Okta and Drupal website, it is preferred to have all users updated in Drupal site without login each time to update user list. miniOrange provides a solution which allows user provisioning into Drupal website using SCIM standard.

miniOrange provides a solution by introducing a Drupal module to support Okta User Provisioning and allows user to access your website by using their Okta account credential to login into Drupal. SCIM User Provisioner module also allows provisioning with custom Providers. SCIM User Provisioner module works with any IDP that conforms to the SCIM standard.
