SCIM

The SCIM server acts as a central repository where different representations coexist, including Users or Groups.

It can be used by the Identity Provider as a provisioning source. When a user is created or updated in SCIM, their local account in the Identity Provider will be automatically created or updated.

Only version 2.0 of SCIM is supported.

Storage

The following storage options are supported. Each NuGet package contains migration scripts to create or update the database structure.

Azure LDAP Provisioning

To establish user provisioning from Azure Active Directory (AD) to the SCIM Endpoint, you can follow this tutorial https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/app-provisioning/use-scim-to-provision-users-and-groups#integrate-your-scim-endpoint-with-the-azure-ad-provisioning-service.

When the provisioning mode is selected, the Tenant URL and Secret Token must be specified.

Create Organization Unit

Assign the value of the SCIM endpoint http://localhost:5003 to the Tenant URL. Set the Secret Token to one of the following values :

OwnerValue
IdServerba521b3b-02f7-4a37-b03c-58f713bf88e7
AzureAd1595a72a-2804-495d-8a8a-2c861e7a736a

Security

By default, the API is protected by an API Key. Any client wishing to execute an operation must include one of the following keys in the Authorization header.
