Microsoft Azure AD SCIM Provisioning

Azure AD Provisioning automates the process of creating, updating, and removing user accounts in third-party applications using API endpoints. miniOrange's automated User Provisioning feature seamlessly integrates with Azure AD to provision all user identities automatically, saving time and managing access privileges throughout the user lifecycle.

Bi-directional and automatic user provisioning and de-provisioning actions enhance security by removing access to sensitive applications and content when an employee leaves or changes roles. This improves your organisation's security profile.

Automatic Provisioning saves time when setting up new users and teams, and also manages access privileges through the user lifecycle. It is considered as a part of user lifecycle management. miniOrange can create, read, and update user accounts for new or existing users, remove accounts for deactivated users, and synchronize attributes across multiple user stores and the applications that the user needs acess to.

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Deprovisioning means deleting a user and removing their access from multiple applications and network systems at once. Automatic Deprovisioning action is triggered when an employee leaves a company or changes roles within the organization. The deprovisioning features increase your organization's security profile by removing access to sensitive applications and content from people who leave your organization.

What is SCIM provisoning in Azure Active Directory (AD)?

System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) is an open standard to automate user provisioning. SCIM standard is a communication medium between an Identity Provider (IDP) and a Service Provider (SP) that requires user identity information.

SCIM provides a defined schema for representing users and groups, and a RESTful API to run CRUD operations on those user and group resources which is essential part of Provisioning users to Office 365

With the SCIM protocol, user data is stored in a consistent way and can be shared with different applications. Since data is transferred automatically, complex exchanges are simplified and the risk of error is reduced. You will learn more about Office 365 provisoning in this document below.
