Does Boomi support SCIM: System for Cross-domain Identity Management ?
We've been involved in implementing an IAM solution based on Okta, Boomi and Active Directory for one of our customers. Okta support native SCIM, Boomi does not. However, SCIM is based on Json. As Adam Arrowsmith already mentioned, you can implement REST Json web services on the Boomi platform. Or call scim services on the IAM platform. That's what we did and it works exactly the same as any other integration process. Btw: one thing I remember is that SCIM, as any "standard", is not always implemented 1:1 or just partly. Anyway, getting and sending Scim messages with Boomi shouldn't be a big issue normally.
Adam Arrowsmith, Could you please help us here? I think this is not currently supported in Boomi. Correct me If I am wrong.
In what context are you asking: identity for Boomi users (i.e. logging into the platform), user authentication for web services published in Boomi, or for authentication when calling external apps (i.e. connector calls)?
We have Boomi in between our IDM (Identity management) platform and other target systems to which user provisioning is being centralized. So we are looking at what Boomi supports in such SCIM calls?
Related to provisioning/de-provisioning users in the AtomSphere platform itself, I do not believe there is native support for SCIM.
However, if Boomi is intended to receive messages from your IDM and perform the necessary provisioning actions in the downstream applications, I imagine it should be possible to create a Boomi web service listener process that receives requests in compliance with the SCIM spec. Similarly it could just as easily create SCIM requests to send to whatever destination. You would just need to import JSON samples from the spec to generate the necessary request/response profiles.
Thank you Adam and Sjaak, we will go in that direction!
