Getting Started

What is SCIM?

SCIM, or System for Cross-domain Identity Management, is an open standard that allows users from one system to be automatically provisioned into another system. Typically customers will use SCIM to publish users from their identity service into Robin. In this configuration, the identity service continues to be the system of record while Robin contains a copy of that information. Typical identity providers that support SCIM include Okta, Azure, OneLogin, and Rippling.

Why use SCIM?

SCIM is a secure way to keep data in sync while simultaneously making it easier for administrators to manage users and making it easier for employees to log into 3rd party systems like Robin. Since it’s a standard used by many systems, IT departments no longer need to rely on specific integrations between systems or have to build custom solutions to provision their users.

How it works?

SCIM consists of series of REST interfaces that respond with JSON payloads. Once configured properly, an identity provider acts as a client to publish identity information to Robin as a service provider. Changes to those identities are kept in sync as information is added, deleted or updated. In Robin, this information includes things like name, email address and department.

SCIM is available to Robin Premier customers only.
