If you don’t use Google Cloud Platform, you can still automate provisioning in another deployment environment.
With 1Password Business, you can automate many common administrative tasks using 1Password SCIM bridge. It uses the System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) protocol to connect 1Password with your existing identity provider, like Google Workspace, JumpCloud, Microsoft Entra ID, Okta, OneLogin, or Rippling.
Step 1: Deploy 1Password SCIM Bridge on Google Cloud Platform
If you don’t already have a Google Cloud Platform account, create one. Then follow these steps.
1.1: Create a project
The SCIM bridge must be deployed within a project. To create a project:
- Visit the Manage resources page and click Create Project.
- Enter a Project Name. If you’re part of an organization, choose it.
If you can’t choose your organization, contact your Google Cloud Platform organization administrator.
- Click Create.
After the project has been created, you can configure the SCIM bridge.
1.2: Configure 1Password SCIM Bridge
Visit 1Password SCIM Bridge on Google Cloud Platform Marketplace and click Configure. If prompted, choose the project you created above.
If you see “‘Kubernetes Engine Admin’ role is required”, ignore it. The message will go away after you create a cluster.
Configure the SCIM bridge and click Deploy:
Choose one or click Create a new cluster. If you create a new cluster, refresh the page after it has been created.
Use the provided default. Or if you have an existing application in the cluster, create a new namespace called “1password”.
- App instance name
Use the provided default.
- 1Password sign-in address
Your 1Password sign-in address. For example:
After the SCIM bridge is deployed, you’ll see its application details.
1.3: Set up 1Password SCIM Bridge
In the “SCIM bridge info” section of the application details, the “1Password SCIM Bridge public IP” begins with
10 (for example,
10.11.255.255), which is a private IP address.
Refresh the page until the IP address changes to a public IP, one that doesn’t begin with
Before you can connect the SCIM bridge to your 1Password account, you’ll also need to:
- Configure a DNS A record for your chosen domain and point it to the IP address of your load balancer. For example:
- Wait for the DNS to propagate.
Then navigate to your SCIM bridge domain.
Step 2: Connect the SCIM bridge to your 1Password account
2.1: Sign in to your 1Password account
On the 1Password SCIM Bridge setup page:
- Enter the domain name you configured for the SCIM bridge to verify it.
- Click Sign In and follow the onscreen instructions.
If you see the details for an existing provisioning integration, you’ll need to deactivate it first. Click More Actions and choose Deactivate Provisioning. Then click Sign In on the SCIM Bridge Setup page again.
2.2: Authenticate with the SCIM bridge
After you complete the setup process, you’ll get a
scimsession file and bearer token. Save them both in 1Password in case you need them again.
- Click Install on <yourdomain>. You’ll see the 1Password SCIM Bridge Status page.
- Enter your OAuth bearer token and click Verify.
The bearer token and
scimsession file you receive during setup can be used together to access information from your 1Password account. You’ll need to share the bearer token with your identity provider, but it’s important to never share it with anyone else. And never share your
scimsession file with anyone at all.
2.3: Configure a static IP address
When you first deploy 1Password SCIM Bridge, an ephemeral IP address is assigned to it. This address is not guaranteed to remain constant, which may interrupt your automated provisioning.
To use the SCIM bridge without interruption, promote the 1Password SCIM Bridge public IP to a static IP address. Learn how to configure a static IP address.
Step 3: Connect your identity provider to 1Password SCIM Bridge
If you’ve already been using 1Password Business, make sure the email addresses and group names in your 1Password account are identical to those in your identity provider.
- If anyone is using a different email address in 1Password, ask them to change it.
- If you have existing groups in 1Password that you want to sync with groups in your identity provider, adjust the group names in 1Password.
Because 1Password SCIM Bridge provides a SCIM 2.0-compatible web service that accepts OAuth bearer tokens for authorization, you can use it with a variety of identity providers.
Connect to the TLS-secured API gateway, proxy, or load balancer where you’ve configured the SCIM bridge (for example:
https://scim.example.com) and authenticate using your OAuth bearer token.
