Convener: Patrick Radtke

Notes-taker: Patrick Radtke

Tags for the session - technology discussed/ideas considered:

SCIM, provisioning

Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

There are a lot of ways to do provisioning. To cover the widest range of customers (both in terms of size and capabilities), implement

  • file upload for customers that aren’t capable of using automated means
  • have an admin interface for deactivating users
  • support SCIM

Groups that had implemented SCIM estimated effort at ~1 month, and allows customers to take advantage of SCIM hubs, so even if a customer is not capable of calling the API themselves, it is easy for them to use a product that does talk SCIM.
