How to configure User Provisioning (SCIM) from Azure AD

  Enterprise tier only

User Provisioning is only available to organizations on our Enterpirse tier.

Blink's User Provisioning (SCIM) integration allows users to automatically be provisioned and disabled, meaning your joiners and leavers process will be automated. We accept updates to the following fields

  • First Name
  • Surname
  • Employee Id
  • Location
  • Job Title
  • Company name
  • Department
  • Manager
  • Email Address
  • Mobile Phone Number
  • Work Phone Number
  • About me

Request a token

Before you start you will need a 'secret token' from us at Blink. Please log a support case or email us at support@joinblink.com to request a SCIM token. 

Set up our Azure Gallery App

Please follow the Configure Blink for automatic user provisioning tutorial to complete the installation and configuration of our Azure AD Gallery app. This app has a tailored set of default mappings meaning that in most circumstances user attributes should be correctly synchronised out of the box.

Sending invitations to users

Users imported to Blink are not automatically sent invitations to download and start using Blink. However, as soon as they are imported, they should be able to download and start using the Blink. You can also send each user an invite by clicking the 'Resend invite' button from their profile.

Tips & Items to Note

Our gallery app will link an Azure AD account to an existing Blink account where the email address or employee id matches. If an existing Blink user is not found a new account will be provisioned

If a callout callout--transparenthe email address or mobile phone number is in use) in another Blink organisation, their account will not be created. You can define an email address in the app to receive notifications of any synchronisation errors

Azure AD syncs around once every 40 minutes, however the initial sync can take several hours to complete if a large number of users are assigned.
