Configure Azure Active Directory for Genesys Cloud SCIM (Identity Management)

Note: This article applies to Genesys Cloud SCIM (Identity Management).

To use Genesys Cloud SCIM (Identity Management), configure Azure Active Directory to sync user entities to Genesys Cloud. In Azure Active Directory, create an enterprise application that you configure to work with the SCIM APIs. Then assign users and groups to this enterprise application. 

Important: Genesys Cloud currently only supports unidirectional syncing from identity management systems to Genesys Cloud.  Any changes made in Genesys Cloud will not be synced to the identity management systems and may be overwritten. For more information, see Does Genesys Cloud SCIM sync information from Genesys Cloud to identity management systems?.

Prerequisites

Token generation

Generate a token to use for Provisioning.

  1. Open Postman.
  2. Import the Genesys Cloud Client Credentials collection for the appropriate collection format from the following links:
    • Collection Format v1: https://www.getpostman.com/collections/06d3bac569ec729f0a59
    • Collection Format v2: https://www.getpostman.com/collections/b4f0048c7fc833b914c2
  3. Replace {{environment}} in the POST API call with the login URL where your Genesys Cloud organization is located, for example, https://login.mypurecloud.com/oauth/token. For a list of regional URLs, see Platform API (Genesys Cloud Developer Center). 
  4. Under Authorization, add the following information:
    1. Username: Enter the Client ID from the Genesys Cloud OAuth client you created.
    2. Password: Enter the Client Secret from the Genesys Cloud OAuth client you created.
  5. Click Send. Your access token appears in the response body. Use this token when you provision Azure Active Directory. See the Provisioning section.

Application setup

Add the Genesys Cloud for Azure application.

  1. Log in to Azure Active Directory.
  2. In the left column, click Enterprise applications.
  3. Click New application
  4. Search for and click Genesys Cloud for Azure.
  5. Click Create

Provisioning

Enter admin credentials and test the connection.

  1. In the left column under Manage, click Provisioning.
  2. Click Get Started.
  3. From the Provisioning Mode menu, select Automatic.
  4. Under Admin Credentials, add the following information:
    1. Tenant URL: Enter the URL of the SCIM endpoint: https://{domain}/api/v2/scim/v2/.

      Use the domain associated with the location of your Genesys Cloud organization:

      Genesys Cloud region Domain
      Americas (Canada) api.cac1.pure.cloud
      Americas (US East) api.mypurecloud.com
      Americas (US West) api.usw2.pure.cloud

    2. Secret Token: Enter the bearer token. The bearer token is the access token returned when you made an API call in Postman. See the Token generation section.
  5. Click Test Connection.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Under Status, click On next to Provisioning Status.
  8. Click Save.

Mappings (optional)

The Azure Active Directory application automatically configures mappings for groups and users. You can modify these mappings or add new attributes to the existing mappings.

  1. Under Mappings, click the name of a mapping.
  2. Delete, edit, or add a new mapping.

    This table shows the mappings of Azure Active Directory fields to SCIM fields.

    Note:
    • The mappings allow a one-way push from Azure Active Directory to Genesys Cloud. For a table that shows the relationship between SCIM and Genesys Cloud fields, see SCIM and Genesys Cloud field mappings.
    • If you are using Microsoft Teams integration with SCIM, then you must set additional field mappings to view the Microsoft Teams badge, view the external presence, and enable click-to-dial. For more information, see Configure the Microsoft Teams Integration .

    1 For Azure Active Directory fields, use StripSpaces with phone number mappings, for example, phoneNumbers[type eq “mobile”].value == StripSpaces([mobile]). The StripSpaces function standardizes the format of telephone numbers in Azure Active Directory. Standardization ensures that telephone numbers match the format of telephone numbers in Genesys Cloud and prevent erroneous user updates from occurring.

    Extensions

    You can set phone number fields to use phone numbers with extensions or extensions only. 

    1. Under Mapping type, select Expression.

    2. In the Expression box, add an expression for a phone number with an extension or an extension only.
      Important: Use any Azure Active Directory Attribute in place of [telephoneNumber] or [attributeThatContainsExtension].
      • Extension only

        Join(";ext=", "tel:", StripSpaces([attributeThatContainsExtension]))
      • Phone number with an extension 

        IIF(IsNullOrEmpty(StripSpaces([attributeThatContainsExtension])), 
            StripSpaces([telephoneNumber]), 
            Join(";ext=", 
                Append("tel:", StripSpaces([telephoneNumber])),  
                StripSpaces([attributeThatContainsExtension])
            )
        )
    3. For new mappings, in the Target attribute box, add the SCIM field for the phone number attribute, for example, phoneNumbers[type eq “work2”].value.
    4. Click Ok.

  3. Click Save.

For more information, see Customizing user provisioning attribute-mappings for SaaS applications in Azure Active Directory in the Azure Active Directory documentation.

Users and groups

Add users and groups that you want to sync from Azure Active Directory to Genesys Cloud. 

Notes:
    • Provisioning can create, update, and delete users in Genesys Cloud.
    • Provisioning can add users to a public group or remove users from a public group in Genesys Cloud, but cannot create or delete groups in Genesys Cloud. If you are syncing groups, only select Update.
    • Groups must be set to public and the names must be the same (case insensitive) in both applications. Otherwise, Active Directory cannot sync user membership to Genesys Cloud.

  1. In the left column under Manage, click Users and groups.

    A list of users and groups in your Azure Active Directory appears.

  2. Click Add user.
  3. Click Users and groups.
  4. Select or search for any users and groups that you want to add to this application.
  5. Click Select
  6. Click Assign

For more information, see Managing user account provisioning for enterprise apps in the Azure portal in the Azure Active Directory documentation and What causes Genesys Cloud to change the status of an Azure Active Directory user to inactive or to delete a user?.

Scope (optional)

By default, Azure Active Directory sets the scope to Sync only assigned users and groups. You can change the scope so that Azure Active Directory syncs all users and groups to Genesys Cloud.

  1. In the left column under Manage, click Provisioning.
  2. In the Scope menu under Settings, select Sync all users and groups
  3. Click Save.

The SCIM APIs now automatically sync user entities from your enterprise application to Genesys Cloud.
