Role provisioning through SCIM

Previouly Plus merchants had to go through a 2-step process to provision users in Shopify from their IdPs such as Okta, OneLogin, and Azure. First they use our SCIM implementation to create users in Plus. Then they manually assign a role to the user in Plus admin.

With this improvement merchants can combine the 2 steps into one by adding a Shopify role (which has been defined in Shopify Plus) at the same time when new users are created in their IdPs. This helps merchants to simplify the user provisioning process and improve operational efficiency.

Currently this feature is supported in the latest OneLogin and Okta apps. Support in Azure apps is in the works and will come soon.
