SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management) allows for synchronized user management between Azure AD and Howspace

For customers with SSO enabled, user management can be centralized. Instead of managing users on both systems, you can focus on access management in Azure AD.

Example use case:

Create user groups in Azure to match the user groups you want in Howspace. One for all your main users and one for each workspace you have. Then simply manage the groups in Azure when there are changes in your team. Any time you add or remove a user in Azure, it will be reflected in Howspace.

All users that are added through SCIM will only have participant permissions by default. Permissions can be modified from the workspace itself. Having SCIM enabled for a workspace partially disables user management from the workspace itself. Users can be added but not removed manually from the workspace. Not all your workspaces have to be connected to your Azure tenant. You select the workspaces where you want to use this feature. Other workspaces can function normally as they have before where users are managed directly in the workspace.

What happens if I remove a user from Azure?

The user will be removed from all workspaces, even from those where the user was added manually.

Can I invite other users to a workspaces that are using SCIM?

Yes, you can invite other users as well (like using email invites for example).
