PingAuthorize Server requires Java for 64-bit architectures. Even if Java is already installed on your system, you should create a separate Java installation for PingAuthorize Server. This setup ensures that updates to the system-wide Java installation do not inadvertently impact PingAuthorize Server.


This setup requires that you install the JDK, rather than the Java Runtime Environment (JRE).

  1. Download and install a JDK.
  2. Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the Java installation directory path.
  3. Add the bin directory to the PATH environment variable.
