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.
