Overview#SCIM Common Attribute MUST_ be included on all resources and are used to provide a reference identifier for the SCIM Resource as well as information about the SCIM Resource
With the exception of the "ServiceProviderConfig" and "ResourceType" server discovery endpoints and their associated resources, these attributes MUST be defined for all SCIM Resources, including any extended SCIM Resource types.
SCIM Common Attribute are considered to be part of every base resource schema and do not use their own "schemas" URI.
For backward compatibility, some existing SCIM schema definitions MAY list common attributes as part of the SCIM Schema. The attribute characteristics (see RFC 7643 Section 2.2) listed here SHALL take precedence over older definitions that may be included in existing schemas.
