We are pleased to announce that the System for Cross Domain Identity Management (SCIM) Connector for CA IdentityMinderTM is now generally available (GA).

The System for Cross Domain Identity Management (SCIM) is a relatively new IETF application-level connector standard designed to simplify identity management processes for SaaS and cloud-based services.

SCIM provides standardized methods for provisioning and de-provisioning of users to the cloud and also supports emerging use cases such as just-in-time provisioning. The CA SCIM Connector supports the core schema of the SCIM 1.1 standard. The list of SCIM implementations is available here: http://www.simplecloud.info/#implementations

More information about the SCIM standard can be found here: http://www.simplecloud.info/

 

With this new SCIM connector, you can now use CA IdentityMinder as a SCIM client to manage accounts in any SCIM enabled endpoint (server). This is important because it helps accelerate the integration into cloud applications by both standardizing and simplifying how identities are managed in the cloud.

This enhancement is another step in our effort to accelerate SaaS application identity management. CA is in a unique position as it relates to SCIM. Using core technology from our acquisition of Layer 7 provides us with the ability to serve also as a SCIM server for applications that do not comply with SCIM today. This allows us to help organizations both integrate to SCIM applications and also expose their own applications as SCIM servers. Standardizing and simplifying the interfaces of services helps accelerate their adoption by customers and partners. This will also help expedite SCIM adoption which is a major concern for any standard.

We will be coming out soon with additional capabilities that help accelerate SaaS identity integration based on these technologies so stay tuned for our next announcements on this topic.
