The System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) REST API provides an HTTP API for data contained in a user store.
Although user stores typically consist of a single datastore, such as PingDirectory Server, they can also consist of multiple datastores.
When a SCIM request is received, it is translated into one or more requests to the user store, and the resulting user store response is translated into a SCIM response. The SCIM response is authorized by sending a policy request to the policy decision point (PDP). Depending on the policy result, including the advices that are returned in the result, the SCIM response might be filtered or rejected.
