Setting up Okta SCIM provisioning for Dagster+#

The System for Cross-domain Identity Management specification (SCIM) is a standard designed to manage user identity information. When enabled in Dagster+, SCIM allows you to efficiently and easily manage users in your Identity Provider (IdP) - in this case, Okta - and sync their information to Dagster+.

In this guide, we'll walk you through configuring Okta SCIM provisioning for Dagster+.

About this feature#

Supported features#

With Dagster+'s Okta SCIM provisioning feature, you can:

  • Create users. Users that are assigned to the Dagster+ application in the IdP will be automatically added to your Dagster+ organization.
  • Update user attributes. Updating a user’s name or email address in the IdP will automatically sync the change to your user list in Dagster+.
  • Remove users. Deactivating or unassigning a user from the Dagster+ application in the IdP will remove them from the Dagster+ organization
  • Push user groups. Groups and their members in the IdP can be pushed to Dagster+ as Teams.

Refer to Okta's SCIM documentation for more information about Okta's SCIM offering.
