Whenever you associate an identity provider with a service provider for outbound authentication, if the JIT provisioning is enabled for that particular identity provider, then the users from the external identity provider will be provisioned into the Identity Server's internal user store. In the JIT provisioning configuration you can also pick the provisioning user store.

JIT provisioning happens while in the middle of an authentication flow. The provisioning can happen in a blocking mode or in a non-blocking mode. In the blocking mode, the authentication flow will be blocked till the provisioning finishes - while in the non-blocking mode, provisioning happens in a different thread.
