SCIM

Enterprise plan subscribers with SAML SSO enabled can opt to enable SCIM for their workspace. SCIM, or System for Cross-domain Identity Management, is an open standard that allows for the automation of user provisioning.

Security Settings page for SCIM in the Linear app

Overview

If you have SAML SSO enabled with a supported identity provider, you can contact us to get SCIM enabled for your workspace.

Once SCIM is enabled, you will not be able to manage users from within Linear, they will be kept up to date through your identity provider.

Configure

Upgrade to the Enterprise plan

Contact us to upgrade to the Enterprise plan and enable SAML SSO.

Configuration

Once SAML is configured, you will see the option to enable SCIM in Settings > Security.
