* Quote from RFC 7642:
1.  Introduction
   Unlike the practice of some protocols like Application Bridging for
   Federated Access Beyond web (ABFAB) and SAML2 WebSSO, SCIM provides
   provisioning and de-provisioning of resources in a separate context
   from authentication (aka just-in-time provisioning).

2.  SCIM User Scenarios
2.1.  Background and Context
   The System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) specification
   is designed to manage user identity in cloud-based applications and
   services in a standardized way to enable interoperability, security,
   and scalability.  The specification suite seeks to build upon
   experience with existing schemas and deployments, placing specific
   emphasis on simplicity of development and integration, while applying
   existing authentication, authorization, and privacy models.  The
   intent of the SCIM specification is to reduce the cost and complexity
   of user management operations by providing a common user schema and
   extension model, as well as binding documents to provide patterns for
   exchanging this schema using standard protocols.  In essence, make it
   fast, cheap, and easy to move users in to, out of, and around the
