Microsoft Azure AD SCIM Validator Unknown test failed

One or more errors occurred. (Object reference not set to an instance of an object.)

This error message is so vague that I don't know what the error refers to?

    Hi Asher,

    I'm sorry to hear that you encountered an error while using the Microsoft Azure AD SCIM Validator. The error message you received, "Unknown test failed. One or more errors occurred. (Object reference not set to an instance of an object.)," is indeed quite vague and doesn't provide much insight into the specific cause of the error.

    Based on the information you provided, it seems that the error is related to a null or uninitialized object reference. This usually happens when the code tries to access a property or method of an object that hasn't been properly instantiated or assigned a value.

    To help you troubleshoot this issue, here are a few steps you can take:

    • Check the input data: Make sure you have provided all the necessary input data and that it is in the expected format. Ensure that you are passing valid and non-null values.
    • Verify the configuration: Review your Azure AD SCIM configuration and ensure that all the necessary settings, mappings, and endpoints are correctly configured. Review the code or implementation: If you are using custom code to interact with the Azure AD SCIM API, examine the relevant code section where the error occurs. Look for any instances where an object or variable is accessed before being properly initialized or assigned a value. Ensure that all objects are instantiated correctly.
    • Debugging and logging: Enable detailed logging or debug mode in your application or SCIM implementation to gather more specific error information. This can help pinpoint the exact location and cause of the error.

    I hope these steps help you in resolving the issue and identifying the root cause of the error. Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions or concerns?

    @Asher Nie(Trucker Path)

    Thank you for your detailed post and I apologize for the delayed response!

    Error Messages:

    • SCIM Validator return Unknown test failed One or more errors occurred. (Object reference not set to an instance of an object.)
    • SCIM API is not compatible with Azure AD Provisioning. Review failed results below.

    Based off your error message(s) I understand that they aren't providing any relevant details to help you troubleshoot this issue, to hopefully help point you in the right direction or resolve your issue, I'll share my findings along with some troubleshooting steps below.


    User Attributes:

    • userName
    • active : boolean
    • name.givenName
    • name.familyName

    Troubleshooting:

    1. When it comes to Validating your SCIM endpoint, I noticed the user attributes that you used aren't all configured - If you're using the default attributes option, can you see if filling in all of the indicated fields helps to resolve the error(s) you're receiving? For more info.
    2. In addition to using the SCIM Validator tool, have you tried using Postman to validate your endpoint to see if you're running it the same errors?

    I hope this helps! If you're still having issues validating your SCIM endpoint, please let me know.

    Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.
