A simpleMultiValued element has the following XML attributes:

  • childName: a required attribute specifying the name of the tag that is used to encode values of the SCIM attribute in XML in the REST API protocol. For example, the tag for the standard emails SCIM attribute is email.
  • dataType: a required attribute specifying the simple data type for the plural SCIM attribute (i.e. the data type for the value sub-attribute). The following values are permitted: binary, boolean, dateTime, integer, and string.
  • caseExact: an optional attribute that is only applicable for string data types. It indicates whether comparisons between two string values use a case-exact match or a case- ignore match. The default value is false.

A simpleMultiValued element contains the following XML elements in sequence:

  • canonicalValue: specifies the values of the type sub-attribute that is used to label each individual value, and an optional mapping to LDAP.
  • mapping: an optional element specifying a default mapping between the SCIM attribute and an LDAP attribute.
