SCIM is a protocol that is based on HTTP [RFC7230]. Along with HTTP headers and URIs, SCIM uses JSON [RFC7159] payloads to convey SCIM resources, as well as protocol-specific payload messages that convey request parameters and response information such as errors. Both resources and messages are passed in the form of JSON-based structures in the message body of an HTTP request or response. To identify this content, SCIM uses a media type of "application/scim+json" (see Section 8.1).

System for Cross-domain Identity Management: Protocol
The System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) specification is an HTTP-based protocol that makes managing identities in multi- domain scenarios easier to support via a standardized service. Examples include, but are not limited to, enterprise-to-cloud service providers and inter-cloud scenarios. The specification suite seeks to build upon experience with existing schemas and deployments, placing specific emphasis on simplicity of development and integration, while applying existing authentication, authorization, and privacy models. SCIM's intent is to reduce the cost and complexity of user management operations by providing a common user schema, an extension model, and a service protocol defined by this document.
