Automated user provisioning (SCIM) – What is it and why should you care?
Having a user-centric adaptive workspace is great and allows your organisation to provide users with everything they need, whether it’s access to applications, files and information; or enabling collaboration between teams and users. But none of this means anything if you can’t properly provision these users and the groups they belong to from a central location without the need to perform manual steps or manage external resources. This is why we are introducing Automated user provisioning via SCIM for Workspace 365 in our Boost license package.
The SCIM API brings user provisioning directly to the core of Workspace 365 and removes the need to host your own synchronisation server to connect Workspace 365 to your Azure Active Directory. We will not be deprecating the existing synchronisation tool so you don’t have to make the switch if you don’t feel the need to do so.
Because SCIM API is part of the Workspace 365 hosted platform, we are taking care of hosting resources and maintenance, simplifying your IT infrastructure and removing the need to manage and maintain your own synchronisation server.
Configuring automated user provisioning (SCIM) in your Workspace
Administrators can easily enable automated user provisioning (SCIM) from the Workspace 365 “Settings” page and use the generated API token to configure SCIM in their Azure tenant. Check out the detailed instructions on how SCIM provisioning works, requirements and configuration steps on our support portal.
