Provision users and groups using SCIM


This feature is in Public Preview.

Azure Databricks supports SCIM, or System for Cross-domain Identity Management, an open standard that allows you to automate user provisioning. SCIM lets you use an identity provider (IdP) to create users in Azure Databricks and give them the proper level of access and remove access (deprovision them) when they leave your organization or no longer need access to Azure Databricks. You can also invoke the SCIM API 2.0 directly to manage provisioning. Some user management, like temporary deactivation and reactivation, can only be performed using the SCIM API.


To use SCIM:

  • Your Azure Databricks account must have the Azure Databricks Premium Plan.
  • You must be an Azure Databricks administrator to configure identity providers to provision users to Azure Databricks or to invoke the Azure Databricks SCIM API directly.
  • You can have a maximum of 10,000 users and 5,000 groups in a workspace.


When you use SCIM provisioning, user and group attributes stored in your IdP can override changes you make using the Azure Databricks Admin Console and Groups API 2.0. For example, if a user is assigned the Allow Cluster Creation entitlement in your IdP and you remove that entitlement using the Users tab on the Azure Databricks Admin Console, the user will be re-granted that entitlement the next time the IdP syncs with Azure Databricks, if the IdP is configured to provision that entitlement. The same behavior applies to groups.

The following articles describe how to set up to provision users using the supported SCIM-enabled IdPs:
