The Identity Server mainly acts as a resident service provider while adding users to the system. You can enable provisioning configurations for the resident service provider. For example, if you try to add users to the system via the SCIM API and authenticate these users using HTTP basic authentication, the system will read the provisioning configurations from the resident service provider.

At the same time, if you want to configure outbound provisioning for any user management operation done via the management console, SOAP API or the SCIM API, then also you must configure outbound provisioning identity providers against the resident service provider. So, based on the outbound configuration, users added from the management console will also be provisioned to external systems like Salesforce and Google Apps.
