Set up SCIM provisioning on Astro

Astro supports integration with the open standard System for Cross-Domain Identity Management (SCIM). Using the SCIM protocol with Astro allows you to automatically provision and deprovision users and Teams based on templates for access and permissions. It also provides better observability through your identity provider for when users and Teams are created or modified across your organization. Specifically, you can utilize SCIM provisioning to complete the following Astro actions from your identity provider platform:

  • Create and remove users in your Organization.
  • Update user profile information.
  • Create and remove Astro Teams.
  • Add and remove Team members.
  • Retrieve user and Team information.

Some user management features on Astro behave differently after you set up SCIM provisioning. See Manage Teams for more information.
