The PingDirectoryProxy Server provides two System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) servlet extensions to facilitate moving users to, from, and between cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications in a secure, fast, and simple way. SCIM is an alternative to LDAP, allowing identity data provisioning between cloud-based applications over HTTPS. One servelt implements SCIM 1.1 and the other servlet implements SCIM 2.

This section describes fundamental SCIM concepts and provides information on configuring SCIM on your server.
