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

Syncing user information across the applications that use Drupal as central Identity Provider is necessary. miniOrange User Provisioning and Sync module ensures that any changes in the user fields/roles are reflected to the connected Joomla application in accordance with the SCIM protocol. This setup guide will walk you through the steps to configure manual, automatic, or scheduler-based provisioning with Joomla. It is compatible with Drupal 9, and Drupal 10.

The module also supports a two-way sync between Drupal and Joomla. You can reach out to us at for one-on-one assistance from a Drupal developer.

How Provisioning Works?

The user Provisioning module supports 3 types of provisioning:

  1. Manual/On-Demand Provisioning
  2. Automatic Provisioning
  3. Scheduler-based Provisioning.
  • Select the provisioning option as per your requirements.
  • SCIM-Server-three-types-of-Provisioning

In Manual/On-Demand Provisioning users will manually sync with the Joomla. It allows provisioning users on an as-needed basis in real time without waiting for the CRON to run. Also, can be used for troubleshooting purposes as well

How to configure Manual/On-Demand Provisioning?

  • Enable the Manual/On-Demand Provisioning checkbox.
  • Drupal-SCIM-Client-Joomla-Select-Manual-Provisioning
  • Select the Provisioning operations (i.e. create, update, deactivate, delete) as per your requirements and click on the All Done button.
  • Drupal-SCIM-Client-Joomla-Manual-Provisioning-Select-Create-User-and-click-All-done

How Manual/On-Demand Provisioning Works?

  • Click on the Perform Manual Sync button.
  • Drupal-SCIM-Client-Joomla-Select-Perform-Manual-Sync
  • Search for the user you want to provision to the Joomla site, select the user, and click on the Submit button.
  • Drupal-SCIM-Client-Joomla-Search-User-Click-Submit
  • Once the user is successfully provisioned to the application, you will get a success message.
  • Drupal-SCIM-Client-Joomla-User-Success-Message
  • To verify is the user is provisioned or not, navigate to the Users tab in the left navigation panel of the Joomla site.
  • Drupal-SCIM-Client-Joomla-Manual-Provisioning-Verify-User

This type of provisioning allows you to sync users with Joomla whenever any CRUD operation(s) is performed on them in Drupal.

How to configure Automatic Provisioning?

  • Enable the Automatic Provisioning checkbox.
  • Drupal-SCIM-Client-Joomla-Select-Automatic-Provisioning
  • Select the Provisioning operations (i.e. create, update, deactivate, delete users) as per your requirements and click on the All Done button.
  • Drupal-SCIM-Client-Joomla-Automatic-Provisioning-Select-Create-User

How to perform the Automatic Provisioning?

Automatic Provisioning will help you provision your users using any of the following events:

  1. Admin Interface: When administrators or privileged users manually perform CRUD operations on a user’s account via the Drupal admin interface.
  2. User account change: Whenever users themselves perform CRUD operations on their own information form user/{user_id}/edit or any other custom form.
  3. 3rd Party Modules: Whenever a user entity is updated/created in the Drupal site using any third-party modules/applications or custom code

Let’s perform Automatic Provisioning using the Admin Interface:-

  • Navigate to the People tab (admin/people) in the top navigation bar of the Drupal Client site and click on the +Add user button.
  • Drupal-SCIM-Client-Joomla-Automatic-Provisioning-Select-Add-User
  • Fill in the details and click on the Create New Account button.
  • drupal-SCIM-Server-User-Information
  • You can check the status of the user in Joomla by navigating to the Users tab in the left navigation panel of the Joomla site.
  • AWS-SCIM-Server-User-Provisioned-Success-Admin-Account

You can see the user has been successfully provisioned to the Drupal Server site.
