Subject: The OASIS Provisioning Services TC has closed

OASIS Members, 

At the request of the Technical Committee, the OASIS Provisioning Services TC has been closed.

The Provisioning Services TC was formed in 2001 to develop a standard, XML-based framework for creating and managing information that represents user identities and related entities. Service Provisioning Markup Language (SPML) version 1.0 was approved as an OASIS Standard by the membership in 2003 (https://www.oasis-open.org/news/pr/service-provisioning-markup-language-spml-ratified-as-oasis-standard).

SPML 1.0 was the first standard to describe a comprehensive set of identity management operations based on a vendor-independent model. SPML 2.0, approved by the membership in 2006, built further by separating protocol definition from payload description, and by providing DSML and XSD profiles. SPML 2.0 has been widely implemented by application software and identity management vendors and is the standard of record in this area.  More recently, the technical committee published proposals (RESTpml, SIMPLEST) for  a simpler REST-oriented binding of SPML 2.0.

Links to SPML version 1.0, SPML version 2.0 and Service Provisioning Markup Language (SPML) Version 2 Errata, approved by the TC in December 2007 can be accessed on the TC's home page at https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=provision#technical.

As is standard OASIS policy, the archives of the Technical Committee will remain publicly visible on TC's web site at http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=provision. The TC's email list has been closed but the archive will remain available at http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/provision/. The comments email will remain open and will be accessible at http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/provision-comment/.

We congratulate all the members and leaders of the TC for their contributions and dedication to the development and delivery of the SPML Standards.
