configure8 Announces SCIM Support: Streamlining User and Group Management

Makes it even easier to reflect team information in your internal developer portal.

Exciting news from configure8! We are thrilled to announce the release of SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management) support for our platform. This update marks a leap forward in our commitment to reflecting fresh, accurate information in your internal developer portal with minimal effort by our customers.

Why SCIM Support Matters for Your Business

In the realm of internal developer portals, accuracy and efficiency in reflecting your technology and operations are paramount. For a solution to be truly competitive, it needs to minimize the effort required to ingest, map onto your architecture, and accurately maintain over time vital data about your team and system. This is where configure8 sets itself apart.

Traditionally, many vendors have required a laborious process to ingest and map teams and to keep this information in sync. configure8, however, takes a more streamlined approach. Recognizing that many enterprises manage groups and users through a centrally managed Identity Provider (IDP), we've implemented SCIM support to enhance this process.

How SCIM Support Enhances configure8

SCIM support in configure8 enables enterprises to utilize the SCIM protocol for the automated provisioning and synchronization of users and groups within configure8. This integration significantly reduces manual efforts and simplifies operations in several ways:

  • User Provisioning: Automatically provision and deprovision users in configure8, ensuring that your user base is always up-to-date with your central IDP.
  • Group Management: Centrally manage group provisioning and membership updates. This feature keeps the composition of your development teams synchronized, and does entirely programmatically.

Setting Up SCIM with configure8

Integrating SCIM with your configure8 setup is straightforward. Once you have set up Single Sign-On (SSO), you can activate SCIM following our easy-to-understand directions. This setup ensures a seamless integration process, allowing you to quickly reap the benefits of this new feature.

The Benefits of SCIM Support in configure8

By enabling SCIM support, configure8 further streamlines the management of your internal developer portals. Here’s what you gain:

  • Centralized Management: All user and group provisioning is centrally managed, reducing administrative burden and potential errors.
  • Real-Time Synchronization: Keep your enterprise's user and group information in sync with your IDP, ensuring consistency and accuracy.
