PingOne Cloud Integration Guide Overview

PingOne Cloud is an identity-as-a-service solution that delivers secure single sign-on to SaaS, legacy and web applications. This documentation describes how to configure a single sign-on partnership between PingOne Cloud 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 PingOne Cloud with Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF), you must have the following:

  • PingOne Cloud
  • A user with app admin privileges

Note: To configure SAML, you must have the Pivotal 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..
