RFC 7643, "System for Cross-domain Identity Management: Core Schema", September 2015

Source of RFC: scim (art)

Errata ID: 6403
Status: Reported
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Reported By: Andrew Webb

Section 4.3 says:

      value  The "id" of the SCIM resource representing the user's
         manager.  RECOMMENDED.

      $ref  The URI of the SCIM resource representing the User's
         manager.  RECOMMENDED.

It should say:

      value  The "id" of the SCIM resource representing the user's
         manager.  REQUIRED.

      $ref  The URI of the SCIM resource representing the User's
         manager.  REQUIRED.

Notes:

The descriptions of the sub-attributes "value" and "$ref" on pages 71 and 72 indicate that these two are required, not recommended.

E.g. "The id of the SCIM resource representing
the User's manager. REQUIRED."

Given that no other value in the RFC is RECOMMENDED, it would seem likely that these two sub-sttributes should be REQUIRED and not RECOMMENDED.
