  • eq Equal to
  • ne Not equal to
  • lt Less than

The logical operators and and or are also supported.

Examples:

GET /scim/v2/Users?filter=userName eq "jane.doe@scim.com"
GET /scim/v2/Users?filter=userName ne "card.skimmer@scim.com"
GET /scim/v2/Users?filter=externalId eq "SCIM1"
GET /scim/v2/Users?filter=active eq "true"
GET /scim/v2/Users?filter=active ne "true"
GET /scim/v2/Users?filter=meta.lastModified lt "2018-04-19T13:47:13Z" 
GET /scim/v2/Users?filter=meta.created gt "2018-04-19T13:47:13Z" 
GET /scim/v2/Users?filter=meta.lastModified gt "2018-04-19T13:47:13Z" and userName eq "jane.doe@scim.com"
GET /scim/v2/Users?filter=userName eq "card.skimmer@scim.com or userName eq "jane.doe@scim.com"
