SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management) is the open API for managing identities.
The specification is now complete and published under IETF.
An overview and detailed specifications can be found at the official website: http://www.simplecloud.info/
The Syncope Core already provides a full-fledged RESTful interface, normally available under /rest; the idea here is to add another RESTful interface available under /scim, compliant to the SCIM v2 specifications as referred above.
The new REST interface can be developed as an extension, whose features will be:
- expose a fully compliant SCIM v2 RESTful interface
- translate the incoming / outgoing payloads from / to SCIM formats to / from Syncope standard formats
- invoke the underlying Logic layer for actual operation implementation
An additional feature will be needed for mapping the standard Syncope Schema to SCIM attributes.
