What is it?

Fourth arrow

The Fourth Account SCIM API provides a limited range of employee data suitable for provisioning users, including their:

  • Fourth Account ID
  • Name and email
  • Preferred language and region

The API leverages the existing System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) standard. This can speed up integration, as you can leverage existing frameworks and open-source libraries when in development. And it is a RESTful API that uses JSON, further simplifying your integration route.

Why use it?

If you need to access Fourth users for the purposes of provisioning them in your own system, then use this API. It provides the right data to provision users successfully without additional unnecessary fields that could become a GDPR or other privacy risk. And using this API allows you to provision users without knowing or needing a work email address; something that many hospitality employees are never provided.
