We are trying to build an enterprise app which can provision users from Azure AD to our SaaS based app for customers.

Want to understand if there is a way to Rate Limit the calls for automatic user provisioning using SCIM. This is needed as in case our system is not able to handle a large number of requests specially during the first time provisioning, we will reject the request but we don't want the SCIM provisioning to go into quarantine as it needs manual intervention to fix that.

    If the custom non-gallery application's generic SCIM connector is being used, there is no way to rate limit the requests coming from AAD to your app. If you submit a request for a gallery application with a SCIM provisioning integration, a rate limit can be set. Worth noting that the minimum allowed number of requests per second for a gallery app is 25/second, and that there is a substantial backlog of provisioning integration requests and it will likely be at least 3 months before a new request is processed.
