There are two ways to automatically provision users via Onelogin.
SCIM Provisioning is a standard that allows your Users to be automatically provisioned in Files.com from Onelogin.
Input the following settings into Onelogin for SCIM:
- SCIM connector base URL: https://app.files.com/api/scim
- Authentication Mode: Basic Auth
- Basic Auth Username and Password: (Enter a username and password of your choosing)
The username and password entered for Basic Auth will also need to be added as the SCIM username and password in Files.com at Settings > Authentication > SSO Providers > Onelogin (Set Enable automatic user provisioning via SCIM? to "Basic" in Files.com if it's not already).
After setting the above, your Onelogin users assigned to the Files.com application in Onelogin will be provisioned to Files.com and should be able to log in to Files.com via SSO.
JIT Provisioning works by creating user records on Files.com upon their first successful login. This method is easier than SCIM, however, it is somewhat limited. Files.com will automatically use Just-In-Time (JIT) Provisioning if you don't set up SCIM.
