User Provisioning with Custom Attributes

SCIM provisioning can discover the target application's schema and populate the provisioning script with attributes that it discovers. This includes custom attributes added to the target application.

Attributes discovered by SCIM are initially commented out. To map your source attribute to the custom attribute in your application, remove the comment syntax and enter a source attribute,.

Provision Users with Custom Attributes using SCIM

  1. Configure your app to use SCIM.

    See Automatic SCIM Provisioning for more information.

  2. Expand the Provisioning Script section.

  1. Find the SCIM-discovered attributes you want to map to source directory attributes.

    The following example shows the custom attribute Last_4_Digits_of_SSN_c__c discovered using SCIM.


Discovered attributes

  1. Remove the comment syntax and enter the source attribute as needed.

    For example, if you have a custom AD user attribute last4SSN, the provisioning script would look like the highlighted line:


mapped custom attribute

  1. Save your changes, and start a provisioning job for your application.

    The value for the specified AD attribute will be synced to the custom attribute in your application. Refer to Synchronizing user accounts with provisioned applications for more information.

Detect Schema Changes in the Target Application

If an application is already configured for SCIM provisioning, you can detect newly added custom attributes to the application's schema from your Admin Portal's provisioning page by clicking Verify > Verify and re-detect settings.


re-detect schema



Re-detecting the schema replaces your existing script. If you need to discover updates to your application's schema, consider copying your existing provisioning script to a text file first.
