wp_scim_image1 SCIM User Provisioning

User Provisioning and Deprovisioning involves the process of creating, updating, and deleting user accounts in multiple applications and systems. It is an Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution that includes management and maintenance of an end user’s identity and user attributes in relation to accessing resources available in one or more systems.

The System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM), is an open standard that allows for the automation of user provisioning. In other words, SCIM manages user identity information by syncing user information across different systems and applications. The goal of SCIM is to securely automate the exchange of user identity data between your company's cloud applications and any service providers, such as enterprise SaaS applications.

SCIM is a REST and JSON-based protocol that defines a client and server role. A client is usually an Identity provider (IDP), which contains user identities. A Service Provider (SP) is usually a SaaS app, like your WordPress site, that needs a subset of information from those identities. When changes to identities are made in the IdP, including create, update, and delete, they are automatically synced to the SP according to the SCIM protocol.
