Real Time User Provisioning and Sync using Joomla as SCIM Server and Drupal as SCIM Client


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 Joomla provides the User Provisioner with SCIM standard.

If your users use both the Drupal and Joomla websites, it is preferable to have all users updated in the Joomla site without having to login each time to update the user list. miniOrange offers a solution that enables user provisioning into Joomla websites using the SCIM standard.

miniOrange proposes a solution by introducing a Drupal module that supports Joomla User Provisioning and Sync, allowing users to access your website using their Drupal account credentials to login into Joomla. The SCIM User Provisioner module also supports provisioning with custom Providers. The SCIM User Provisioner module is compatible with any IDP that follows the SCIM standard.
