SDK Provisioning Integration

Provisioning Integration


SIMS ID does not provide all the data that exists within SIMS and it is not a replacement for the rich data available through the SIMS Partner programme’s APIs; SIMS ID can pass lightweight data suitable for user provisioning and group association; this data can also be passed securely using a range of protocols.

Approaches to Provisioning

SIMS ID has a provisioning API that exposes a subset of data; Access to this API is restricted to secure access using the SIMS ID STS.

The SIMS ID Provisioning API is defined by Swagger.

Swagger is a tool used to provide a list of SIMS ID APIs. This forms the API documentation and will be available on a public URL.

The following data (subject to the agreement of the data controller) will be available for sites that are aligned with your product.

User information

  • Name

  • Groups/class/house/year

  • Age range eg <13 / >16

  • Unique ID

Site information

  • Name

  • DFE

  • Unique ID

API endpoint

During September a Swagger documented API will be available on the SIMS ID Partner Development Platform for Provisioning Integrators to develop against. A corresponding endpoint will be made available to Partners in the live environment.

Schools as the data controllers will need to give consent to transfer data to provisioning partners
