SCIM Integration: MS Entra and DataHub

Feature Availability
Self-Hosted DataHub
Managed DataHub


On completion of this setup the MS Entra will automatically manage the groups/users/roles from MS Entra to DataHub.

Consider following configuration in MS Entra

  • A group governance-team group
  • And it has two memeber john and sid
  • And the group has role Reader

If you configure the governance-team for auto provisioning, MS Entra will creates the governance-team group and it's member automatically on DataHub and set the Reader roles on users.

If you remove john from group governance-team then MS Entra will automatically removes the john from DataHub's governance-team group.

If you permanently deletes a user or group from MS Entra then MS Entra will automatically deletes the user or group from the DataHub.

MS Entra doesn't send the user's password on user creation and hence DataHub Admin need to reset their password to be able to login into the DataHub.

Only Admin, Editor and Reader roles are supported in DataHub. These roles are preconfigured/created on DataHub
