Description: Service Provisioning Markup Language (SPML) is an Extensible Markup Language (XML)-based framework for exchanging user, resource, and service provisioning information between cooperating organizations. Provisioning is the automation of all the steps required to manage (setup, amend, and revoke) user or system access entitlements or data relative to electronically published services. SPML is the open standard for the integration and interoperation of service provisioning requests. The goal of this specification is to allow organizations to securely and quickly set up user interfaces for Web services and applications, by letting enterprise platforms such as Web portals, application servers, and service centers generate provisioning requests within and across organizations.
