PingOne Cloud is an identity-as-a-service solution that delivers secure single sign-on to SaaS, legacy and web apps. This documentation describes how to configure a single sign-on partnership between PingOne Cloud as the Identity Provider (IdP) and Single Sign‑On for VMware Tanzu Application Service as the Service Provider (SP).

Single Sign‑On for VMware Tanzu Application Service supports service provider-initiated authentication flow and single logout. It does not support identity provider-initiated authentication flow. All Single Sign‑On communication takes place over SSL.


To integrate PingOne Cloud with Single Sign‑On, you must have the following:

  • PingOne Cloud
  • A user with app admin privileges

Note: To configure SAML, you must have the Single Sign-On service broker installed on your Ops Manager deployment. You need to create a plan, grant any plan administrators, and specify any organizations this plan should be the authentication authority for. For help configuring plans, see the Manage Service Plans topic..
