How to Build a Flask SCIM Server Configured for Use with Okta

At a very high level, the SCIM (System for Cross-Identity Management) protocol exists to provision and sync users and groups across various, independent systems. There is some room for nuance in the SCIM spec. In this post we will take a look at some basic SCIM operations. We’ll peek under the hood at the flow between Okta and a SCIM server built in Flask using PostgreSQL as our app database. Even if you’re not a Python dev, hopefully you can take away some of the concepts in this guide for your own SCIM implementation.
