PingFederate Integration Guide Overview
PingFederate is a federation server that provides identity management, single sign-on, and API security for the enterprise. This documentation describes how to configure a single sign-on partnership between PingFederate as the Identity Provider (IdP) and the Single Sign-On Service (SSO) for Pivotal Cloud Foundry as the Service Provider (SP).
SSO supports service provider-initiated authentication flow and single logout. It does not support identity provider-initiated authentication flow. All SSO communication takes place over SSL.
To integrate PingFederate with Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF), you need:
- PCF, v1.7.0 or later.
- Single Sign-On, v1.1.0 or later.
- A user with admin privileges.
Note: To configure SAML, you must have the Single Sign-On service broker installed on your PCF 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.
