Introduced in GitLab 15.5.

GitLab provides an SCIM API that both implements the RFC7644 protocol and provides the /Users endpoint. The base URL is /api/scim/v2/groups/:group_path/Users/.

To use this API, Group SSO must be enabled for the group. This API is only in use where SCIM for Group SSO is enabled. It’s a prerequisite to the creation of SCIM identities.

Not to be confused with the internal group SCIM API.
