Can I provision users into Azure AD from an external HR platform?

I'm looking to integrate Azure AD into our HR platform so that when a new user is created on the HR platform their identity is created in Azure AD. The HR vendor doesn't know of a way to do this and I can't find any resources about it, all search results regarding SCIM provisioning are using AAD as the identity provider.

The HR platform does support provisioning to downstream platforms via SCIM.

Any welp would be appreciated.

    Today, this isn't possible. However, we recently announced a new feature at Microsoft Ignite earlier this month - I'm not sure if there is other public documentation yet, but it's mentioned here: https://ignite.microsoft.com/en-US/sessions/edb2bbb2-49a5-4df9-8744-1c9951f5f126

    This feature is being worked on right now and we'll have a public update on this somewhere during the first half of next calendar year.

    Separately, we (AAD Provisioning engineering) will reach out to BambooHR to discuss the opportunity to integrate with this feature.

    Hi @Kevin Pattison

    If they do not have an SCIM solution, then you will be required to build one yourself with APIs. If you have already contacted your Account Representative there and they said no, then I'm afraid you are out of luck.

    Just to clarify if you have been looking at "Azure Active Directory integration with BambooHR" this is for Single-sign On (SSO) and is not a SCIM solution.

    Here is some more information if you or a third party would like to develop a SCIM solution for BambooHR:
