Configure SCIM for self-managed GitLab instances

You can use the open standard System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) to automatically:

  • Create users.
  • Remove users (deactivate SCIM identity).

The internal GitLab SCIM API implements part of the RFC7644 protocol.

If you are a user, see configuring SCIM for groups.
