Manage members with SCIM provisioning

Slack supports provisioning of users with the System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) standard.

To use provisioning, you’ll need a connector app along with one of our supported identity providers. If you’d like to build a custom script to handle provisioning, see our SCIM API for details.

Provisioning benefits

With SCIM provisioning, Owners and Admins can manage members more efficiently:

Here is what SCIM provisioning doesn’t allow you to do:

  • Create Guest accounts. You’ll need to create them as a member, then restrict them from your Slack Members admin page at
  • Set up User Group handles with which User Groups are mentioned.


Set up provisioning

Setup will vary according to the identity provider you use. We support:

The provider will ask for an API token created through the OAuth 2.0 flow.

Slack also supports live syncing of Active Directory groups for workspaces using these identity providers.

Note: Users added through SCIM are considered billable as soon as they are provisioned. The cost for your new member’s account will be prorated for the remainder of the current billing period.
