Manage team 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.
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 Team Members admin page at
my.slack.com/admin. 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 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.
Who can use this feature?
Team Owners can turn on this feature so Administrators can manage provisioning. Available to teams on the
Plus plan and Slack Enterprise Grid.
