Sync your directory services with Akamai MFA

You can use the SCIM 2.0 protocol to provision user accounts from external directories.
SCIM stands for System for Cross-domain Identity Management. It allows you to automate the provisioning process by synchronizing your directory services with ​Akamai MFA​.

Here are the main points of the configuration process:

  1. Create a SCIM type user provisioning in ​Akamai MFA​. During this step, you generate your authentication credentials to configure the SCIM service in your identity management system.

  2. Configure the source of user and group information in your identity management system. This includes selecting your provisioning method (SAML or API), setting ​Akamai MFA​ as the receiving entity, and defining required user and group attributes.

  3. Configure ​Akamai MFA​ to receive users and groups data based on the previous configuration.

  4. Test your configuration, and if it works correctly, deploy it.

See Provisioning users to learn more about all supported provisioning methods.

As an experienced identity engineer, you can complete those steps in approximately 1-3 days.
