If you chose OIDC mode when setting up the PingAuthorize Policy Editor, you need to configure an OIDC provider, such as PingFederate or PingOne, to accept sign-on requests from the PingAuthorize Policy Editor.

For information about using See
PingFederate Configuring PingFederate as an OIDC provider for PingAuthorize policy administration
PingOne Configuring PingOne as an OIDC provider for PingAuthorize policy administration
  1. Use the following configuration to create an OAuth 2 client that represents the PingAuthorize Policy Editor.
    OAuth 2 client configuration Configuration value
    Client ID pingauthorizepolicyeditor
    Redirect URI https://<host>:<port>/idp-callback
    Grant type Implicit
    Response type token id_token
    • openid
    • email
    • profile
    1. Configure the access tokens and ID tokens issued for this client with the following claims:
    • sub
    • name
    • email
  2. Configure the OIDC provider to accept a cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) origin that matches the PingAuthorize Policy Editor's scheme, public host, and port, such as https://<host>:<port>.
  3. Configure the OIDC provider to issue tokens to the PingAuthorize Policy Editor only when the authenticated user is authorized to administer policies according to your organization's access rules.
    Note: Sign the tokens with a signing algorithm of RSA using SHA256.

    For PingFederate, this level of authorization is controlled by using issuance criteria. For more information, see the PingFederate documentation.


    To run a PingAuthorize Policy Editor Docker container in OIDC mode, use the PING_OIDC_CONFIGURATION_ENDPOINT and PING_CLIENT_ID environment variables in your docker run command, as shown in the following example.

    For proper communication between containers, create a Docker network using a command such as docker network create --driver <network_type> <network_name>, and then connect to that network with the --network=<network_name> option.
    docker run --network=<network_name> -p 8443:1443 -d \
    --env-file ~/.pingidentity/devops \
    --env PING_EXTERNAL_BASE_URL=localhost:8443 \
    --env PING_CLIENT_ID=c2f081c0-6a2e-4249-b07d-d60234bb5b21 \
    --env PING_OIDC_CONFIGURATION_ENDPOINT=https://auth.pingone.com/3e665735-23da-40a9-a2bb-7ccddc171aaa/as/.well-known/openid-configuration \
