Read this article to learn how to setup the Stack Overflow for Teams integration.


Important Considerations

  • Stack Overflow for Teams SCIM API is based on version 2.0 of the SCIM standard.
  • If you need to update your token, you must deactivate the IdM integration, update the token, and then reactivate the IdM integration.
  • Stack Overflow for Teams does not allow user creation over SCIM and it relies on Just In Time provisioning when a user presents a valid identity assertion.
  • Optionally, JumpCloud can manage userType via SCIM by enabling manage user roles on SCIM Integration settings page, Values accepted are as below:
    • Admin: the user is promoted to an Admin
    • Registered/Any: If set to any other value (such as Registered), the user is demoted from Admin
  • The following opeartions are supported for users:
    • Deactivate/Reactivate a user
    • Optionally promote/demote a user to/from Admin
  • Groups are not supported.

A default set of attributes are managed for users. See the Attribute Mappings section for more details.

Configuring the Identity Management Integration

To configure Stack Overflow for Teams

    • Generate a SCIM authorization bearer token – The shared secret needed to configure an Identity Provider for SCIM 2.0 integration. Treat this as a password. If lost, a new token must be generated and configured in your Identity Provider.
    • Allow SCIM to manage user roles – Determines whether or not the ability to promote/demote users to/from Admin is enabled.
