PingFederate supports the SCIM 1.1 protocol for outbound and inbound provisioning.
At an identity provider (IdP) outbound site, you have the option to automatically provision and maintain user accounts at service provider (SP) sites that have implemented SCIM. When you have PingFederate configured as an SP inbound site, you can automatically provision and manage user accounts and groups for your own organization using the standard SCIM protocol.
