  2. Under General Settings select "Enable SCIM", then "Save Settings" Sentry Enable SCIM Instruction Sentry will display "SCIM Information" that contains your Auth Token and SCIM Base URL. SCIM Credentials Fields

Okta Configuration

  1. Sign in to your Okta organization with your administrator account. From the admin console's sidebar, select Applications > Applications, then select the existing Sentry application.

  2. Select the "Provisioning" tab, then "Configure API integration". Okta configure SCIM API

  3. Select "Enable API Integration", enter the SCIM URL from the auth settings page as the Base URL field. For the API Token, copy the Auth Token value from the auth settings page.

You can use "Push Groups" to sync and assign groups in Okta; they will be reflected in Sentry teams.

Known Issues / Troubleshooting

  • Sentry does not currently support setting any User attributes other than userName and active.
  • The Import Users feature is not currently supported. Sentry's SCIM API does not at this time support the User name attribute fields firstName and lastName. Instead, we return these with values of N/A for compatibility purposes.
  • Setting active to false on a User will delete the organization member record associated with the user.
  • The only filter operation supported for resources is eq.
  • When provisioning a new team, Sentry will both normalize and convert the team displayName uppercase to lowercase, and convert spaces to dashes.
  • The GET /Groups endpoint will return a maximum of 10000 members in a group, see SCIM API documentation for more information.
