Manage team members with SCIM provisioning

Who can use this feature?
  • Team Owners can turn on this feature so Administrators can manage provisioning.
  • Available to teams on the Plus plan.

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

Provisioning benefits

With SCIM provisioning, Team Owners and Admins can:

  • Create a new user
  • Update a user's profile information
  • Deactivate a user
  • Create a User Group
  • Add or remove team members from a User Group
  • Delete a User Group

It doesn’t allow you to:

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

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.

Set up provisioning

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

The provider will ask you for an API token, which you can create from api.slack.com/web.

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

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