Setup Guide for Office 356 provisioning | Microsoft 365 Provisioning

Microsoft 365 Provisioning involves the process of creating, updating and deleting a user's account in Office 365 from your miniOrange portal. With miniOrange provisioning feature, you can provision all the users with their identities automatically in Office 365.

By granting users access to Office 365, you can streamline the process of setting up new users and teams, while effectively managing access permissions throughout the user lifecycle. With miniOrange, you can create, read, and update user accounts for both new and existing users, deactivate and remove accounts when needed, and synchronize data seamlessly.

Microsoft 365 User Provisioning and deprovisioning actions are bi-directional, so you can create accounts inside an external application and import them into miniOrange, or alternatively create the accounts in miniOrange and then push them out to any linked external applications.

Microsoft 365 Deprovisioning means deleting a user and removing their access from multiple applications and network systems at once. Deprovisioning action is triggered when an employee leaves a company or changes roles within the organization. The deprovisioning features increase your organization's security profile by removing access to sensitive applications and content from people who leave your organization.

What is SCIM for user provisioning?

System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) is an open standard to automate user provisioning. SCIM standard is a communication medium between an Identity Provider (IDP) and a Service Provider (SP) that requires user identity information.

SCIM provides a defined schema for representing users and groups, and a RESTful API to run CRUD operations on those user and group resources which is essential part of Provisioning users to Office 365

With the SCIM Protocol, user data is stored in a consistent way and can be shared with different applications. Since data is transferred automatically, complex exchanges are simplified and the risk of error is reduced. You will learn more about Office 365 provisioning in this document below.
