Add a credential from your PingOne environment to the PingAccess administrative console to establish a connection between PingAccess and PingOne Protect.

PingOne connections are currently only used as part of PingAccess's integration with PingOne Protect. For a more detailed explanation of this integration, see PingOne Protect integration.

You must create a PingOne connection before you can create a risk policy in PingAccess. A PingOne connection makes it possible for PingAccess to receive risk evaluations from PingOne Protect.

To create or manage PingOne connections through the PingAccess administrative console, see:

Adding a PingOne connection

  1. Configure PingOne Protect for connectivity with PingAccess:
    1. In your PingOne administrative environment, go to Integrations > PingFederate.

      Currently, you must use a PingFederate connection because PingAccess does not have one of its own.

    2. Expand an existing connection or click the + icon to create a new one.
    3. On the Overview tab, click the + icon next to Credentials.
    4. Click the Copy to clipboard icon, then click Done.

      This copies a JSON Web Token (JWT) to your clipboard that contains information on your PingOne environment.

  2. Configure PingAccess for connectivity with PingOne Protect:
    1. In PingAccess, go to Settings > System > PingOne Connections and click +Add PingOne Connection.
    2. Complete the fields.

      For more information, see PingOne connection field descriptions.

    3. Click Save.

After you've created a connection, you can assign it to a specific risk policy through the Risk Policies page. For more information, see Adding a risk policy.

Editing a PingOne connection

  1. Go to Settings > System > PingOne Connections.
  2. Click the Expand icon to view more details about the connection that you want to edit.
  3. On the Properties tab, click the Pencil icon.
  4. Make the required changes.

    For more information, see PingOne connection field descriptions.

  5. Click Save.

Deleting a PingOne connection

  1. Go to Settings > System > PingOne Connections.
  2. Click the Expand icon to view more details about the connection that you want to delete.
  3. Click the Delete icon.
  4. Click Delete.
