The SCIM protocol uses the REST concept to define the actions a SCIM Consumer can perform on a resource managed by a SCIM Service Provider. These actions are:
|GET||Reads a resource (or resources) from the Service Provider|
|POST||Creates a new resource at the Service Provider|
|PUT||Updates an existing resource, as this action requires the entire resource provided in the body, it is more like a replace than an update|
Updates an existing resource with changesÂ (where supported).
Note: The PATCH action is optional and not supported in some implementations
|DELETE||Deletes a resource at the Service Provider|
