You would like to add a user to a static group via SCIM API PATCH method by API HUB. (Operation type PATCH /rest/iam/scim/v2/Groups/{id})

The user is added successfully but no permission is granted.


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  • You checked and the user is not in the Permission Group
  • User is upserted to static group via PATCH method by API HUB using SCIM API which is successful
  • You can check again the same Permission Group and user is added but the user does not have permission


There is a known issue causing the permission role to not be refreshed post the static group changed via SCIM API, this should be an automated refresh job in the backend.


SuccessFactors Engineering team is working on the fix, targeted fix date is in 2H 2023 release.
