ERROR Solution
Message: "Provisioning failed: Multiple users in the realm match the given user's email address." Add the SCIM external IdM username to the correct user in the realm and re-provision the user.” This message appears when your realm has multiple users that share the same email address. Go to the Quick Base Manage All Users page in the Admin Console, find the user, and provide the username that matches the username stored in your IdM system for that user. After the user is saved, re-provision the user in the IdM.
Provisioning failed: Multiple users in Quick Base match the given user's email address, but none exist in the realm. Add the correct user to the realm and re-provision the user. This message appears when there are no users currently in your realm that have this email address, but multiple users exist in Quick Base that share the same email address. The user must be added to your realm for provisioning to succeed.
The updated user attribute (First name, Last name, email) is not reflected on the Quick Base Manage All Users page Make sure the user is a user whose email domain belongs to the company, or replace the API token used to configure the account with a realm admin who is an in-company user.
