A partial implementation of the SCIM 2.0 provider specification for use with Django.

Project Description

This is a partial provider-side implementation of the SCIM 2.0 [1] specification for use in Django. It covers:

  • Serialization of Django User objects to SCIM documents
  • REST view for <prefix>/Users/uid
  • REST view for <prefix>/Users/.search
  • SCIM filter query parser covering all operators and most fields
  • Limited pluggability support

Note that currently the only supported database is Postgres.


$ pip install django_scim

Then add the django_scim app to INSTALLED_APPS in Django’s settings file and the necessary url mappings:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
        SearchView.as_view(), name='scim-search'),
    url(r'^/scim/v2/Users/([^/]+)$', UserView.as_view(), name='scim-user'),


By default, django_scim uses the email field on the User class. However, if your application maintains multiple identities using custom separate database tables, you can override django_scim.models.SCIMUser and pull that in:

from django_scim.models import SCIMUser as _SCIMUser

from import Identity

class SCIMUser(_SCIMUser):
    def __init__(self, user):
        super(SCIMUser, self).__init__(user)
        self.identities = (Identity.objects

    def emails(self):
        return { i.primary for i in self.identities}

Here we keep multiple email addresses in a table that is linked to UserProfile. Next, tell the views to use this class instead of the default:

url(r'^/scim/v2/Users/([^/]+)$', UserView.as_view(usercls=SCIMUser),

When your email address live in different tables, you’ll also need to extend the filter query parser to make sure they can be queried on:

from django_scim.filter import SCIMFilterTransformer

class AcmeSCIMTransformer(SCIMFilterTransformer):
    email = lambda *args: ''

    def join(self):
        return """
            JOIN bb_userprofile p ON p.user_id =
            LEFT OUTER JOIN bb_identity i ON i.profile_id =

And pass it on to the view:

    UserView.as_view(usercls=SCIMUser, parser=AcmeSCIMTransformer),
