Connect identity provider groups to your Enterprise Grid org

Slack allows you to sync groups from your identity provider (IDP) to workspaces within your organization — making it easier to manage Slack at scale. If your IDP does not support syncing groups, you can use our SCIM API to do it manually.

Auto-provisioning at a glance

  • Org Owners/Admins can automatically add or remove members from workspaces using IDP groups.
  • Members can’t deactivate their accounts when auto-provisioning is enabled.
  • Any changes to your IDP group(s) can only be made through your IDP.


Connect an IDP group

  1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.
  2. Select Administration from the menu, then Manage Organization.
  3. Click Workspaces, then search for the workspace you'd like to connect an IDP group to.
  4. Click on the workspace name. 
  5. Click IDP groups, then click Connect IDP groups.
  6. Search for groups, then click Connect to Workspace. You can select multiple groups to add at once or connect each group individually.
  7. You can enable auto-provisioning by clicking Enable auto-provisioning for this group. This will automatically add or remove members to the workspace as they are added or removed from your IDP group.
  8. Finally, click Connect to workspace

 

Keep in mind: Connecting an IDP group will not impact members who are already a part of the workspace.

Tip: Turn on auto-provisioning by clicking the  three dots icon to the right of a group, then select Enable auto-provisioning.

Warning! Disconnecting an IDP group from a workspace will automatically remove all members in that group from that workspace.
