QorusDocs now support's auto provisioning of user accounts using The System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) protocol. This implementation has been developed specifically for use with the Okta identity management platform.
SCIM provides a defined schema for representing users and groups, and a RESTful API to run CRUD operations on those user and group resources. Updating user information in the Okta platform will communicate these changes to QorusDocs using the SCIM protocol.
What SCIM and what is it used for?
SCIM, or System for Cross-domain Identity Management, is an open standard that allows for the automation of user provisioning.
SCIM can be used to automate the provisioning of users within QCH only if you have an existing Okta OIDC app integration configured.
Follow these general steps to renew your SCIM token.
- Renew the SCIM token from your QorusDocs Hub.
- Update the Okta SCIM app integration with the new SCIM token.
To perform the token renewal, you will need:
- An existing OIDC app integration with QorusDocs.
- An existing SCIM app integration with QorusDocs.
- An active QorusDocs Hub.
- The Client ID and Client Secret you were provided by QorusDocs during your SCIM setup.
Note: The SCIM OAuth Bearer token expires every twelve months from the date it is created. Currently, QorusDocs does not have a mechanism to notify customers when their SCIM OAuth Bearer token is expiring/has expired. We recommend that customers set a Task/Calendar reminder around eleven months from the time the SCIM OAuth Bearer token is generated, this can be created from within QorusDocs in order to avoid any syncing issues.
Step 1: Renew the SCIM token from your QorusDocs Hub.
Sign into your QorusDocs hub.
Click on the "Settings" Drop Down.
Click on "Hub Management".
Click on "SCIM Token".
Enter in the client ID you were provided by QorusDocs during the SCIM implementation.
Enter the client secret you were provided by QorusDocs during the SCIM implementation.
Click on "Create Token".
The new SCIM token will be generated, click on copy, and save the token.
Step 2: Update the Okta SCIM app integration with the new SCIM token.
Sign into the Okta portal.
Select the “Applications” drop down, and then select “Applications”.
Select the relevant SCIM app integration.
Click on the "Provisioning" tab.
Update the "OAuth Bearer Token" using the token you saved in step 1 and then click "Save".
You have now successfully updated the SCIM token.
