Now supported in the Bitwarden Enterprise plan, the System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) is an industry-open standard protocol that enables the automation of management and exchange of user identity information. By simply adding new users to an existing identity provider (IdP) or directory, SCIM automatically creates new employee accounts across all company tools and SaaS services. SCIM can also be used with groups to assign users specific roles, or it can work in reverse to automatically de-provision accounts.
