SCIM (again)

Hello,

I can see some older threads about SCIM drivers.
In those threads, there are no finite answers, which I interpret as: I
will have to build one myself.

Is that still the case. I would't call myself lazy, that being said, I
would rather just install something which is already done.

It does seem (from my little corner, down here), that the SCIM API is
widely adopted, and therefore I assume that someone knows something about
it.

FYI: My personal interest in this right now is that CyberArk supports
provisioning via SCIM, and I would like to utilize this.

Re: SCIM (again)

Hello

SCIM is not something new or something one has to re-write special IDM Driver to do this. You have plenty of Opinions to work this out. You can use NetiQ SOAP driver or NetIQ REST driver to build intgr. with SCIM interface.

Both driver supports most of the common HTTP methods (some of still not supported in both NetiQ SOAP or NetIQ REST), and you can build the SCIM payload by yourself before submitting it out. I have even build the similar intgr. not using NetiQ REST or NetIQ SOAP driver, but simply using Java http libs in ECAMAScript to acheieve that to save the NetIQ licensing costs

I have also used NetIQ REST driver to do SOAP and REST within the same driver, so people are confusing the drivers with each other.

Regards,
Maqsood.

I suspect he means using the REST driver as a listener for incoming SCIM
requests, but regardless your points are valid.

I think the key difference between the SOAP and REST shim is that SOAP
expects/demands the output/input be XML. REST does not. Otherwise, one
is very similar to the other with some extra support for auth methods.

Thanks for the replies.
My point was that SCIM seems to be a specific "dialect". Thus it could be
that someone had made a driver which handled this specific dialect.

I am aware that we can get data in and out. It is the parsing of said data
that is the interresting part here.
A bit like the support for DSML in a soap driver.


I think I will post an enhancement request.

I haven't looked at SCIM in ... a while. It seems like it should be possible to do an add-on package for SCIM stuff on top of the REST or SOAP driver. Is SCIM standardized enough as commonly used for that to make sense, though?
