Manage members with SCIM provisioning
Slack supports member provisioning with the System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) standard. To use provisioning, you’ll need to use a connector app alongside a supported identity provider.
Tip: If you’d like to build a custom script to handle provisioning, see our SCIM API for details.
SCIM provisioning allows Workspace Owners and Admins to manage members more efficiently. Here's what you can do:
*Only available on the Enterprise Grid plan. If you’d like to create a Single-Channel Guest, or create a guest on the Business+ plan, you can create a member and then change their role to a guest.
Note: It’s not possible to set up unique display names for user groups with SCIM provisioning.
Set up provisioning
Your SCIM provisioning setup will vary depending on the identity provider you use. Here are the ones we support:
During set up, your identity 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: Members and guests added through SCIM are billable as soon as they sign in for the first time. The cost of new accounts will be prorated for the remainder of your current billing period.
