Configure outbound provisioning settings

On the Server ConfigurationServer SettingsOutbound Provisioning screen, select the database that PingFederate® should use internally to facilitate provisioning for service providers when PingFederate is configured as an IdP.

The database stores the state of synchronization between the source data store and the target data store, enabling periodic checking to determine whether updates are required at the target site. PingFederate checks the source data store for changes every minute by default. As needed, you may change the provisioning synchronization frequency on this screen as well.

CautionA pre-installed, default HyperSQL database is selected for initial setup and testing. However, we strongly recommend that you choose your own, secured database for production deployments.
NotePingFederate has been tested using HyperSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Database, and Oracle MySQL as internal provisioning data stores. However, any relational database should work as well; adaptable setup scripts used for HyperSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Database, and Oracle MySQL are provided in the <pf_install>/pingfederate/server/default/conf/provisioner/sql-scripts directory.

Note that the Outbound Provisioning screen appears only when the Outbound Provisioning role is enabled on the Server ConfigurationServer SettingsRoles & Protocols screen.

  1. Select a data store from the list.

    If the data store you want is not shown in the list, PingFederate is not yet configured to access the store; click Manage Data Stores to create a connection to the data store.

  2. Change the Synchronization Frequency value.

    The default value is 60 (seconds).
