10. Click “Test API credentials” and make sure the success message appears.

11. Select “Push Groups” section on top. The list of available groups will appear, and you can select “Activate group push” in “Push Status” column for groups you want to be synced.

NOTE: This only defines if the information about the group itself and its memberships will be made available to Looop. Users who will be synced, even if based on group memberships are chosen in different section.

12. You can configure what users will be synced with Looop by selecting “Assignments” section on top, it’s shared between SSO and Provisioning config, so should already be set up.

Available attributes

Looop supports these two namespaces and these fields:

  • urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:extension:Looop:2.0:User

  • area

  • department

  • custom_1

  • custom_2

  • custom_3

  • urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:extension:enterprise:2.0:User
