System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM)

What’s SCIM?

System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) allows you to easily manage users at scale on the O’Reilly learning platform through your organization’s SCIM-enabled identity provider (IdP)—so you have one less user management system to maintain.

The O’Reilly SCIM experience

The O’Reilly SCIM API is based on version 2.0 of the SCIM standard. With SCIM, you can activate new users and revoke user access directly through your IdP. SCIM can also be used alongside SSO so you can manage user access and users can easily sign in to the O’Reilly learning platform, all through your IdP.

All SCIM user management will be done through your IdP instead of the learning platform’s admin console. To ensure that all user management is controlled through your IdP, just-in-time user provisioning and no-touch reactivation features are disabled.

Identity provider configuration

When implementing SCIM with O’Reilly, you’ll work with our integration team to create a simple user management system through your identity provider. To get started, use the token creator on the Integrations page of your Admin Console to generate the required SCIM API token. If you don’t have access or if you run into any issues, please reach out to your customer success manager. Then follow the steps in the configuration guide for your organization’s IdP to set up the integration. If your IdP isn’t listed below, you can always integrate with our SCIM API directly.
