User Provisioning

    • Top-down synchronization - In this approach, the application is the target, and SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service is the source. Users are initially created in SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service and then synced down to the application.
    • Bottom-up synchronization - In this approach, the application is the source and SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service is the target. Users are created by the application and then uploaded from the source application to SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service.

In both the top-down and the bottom-up approach, the Sales Cloud application must implement the SCIM-based APIs to synchronize users.

The following table lists each application that Sales Cloud Single Sign-On supports and indicates which user synchronization methods are supported by each application
