1. Click Add Application.
  2. Review the template descriptions to determine which template you should use.
    A screen capture of the Select Template page, which lists the templates available for application owners to use. This screen capture shows the templates for Public Application, which is an OpenID Connect template; Internal Application (and Partners), which is an OAuth template; Access Control Policy, which is a PingAccess template; and Existing Application. A side bar appears to the right of the template list to provide a guide for choosing which template to select.

    On this page, you can:

    • Select the filtering options to filter OAuth, OpenID Connect, SAML, and PingAccess templates.
    • Click the Review Configuration link within the template description to view the details associated with each template.

    If you are unclear about what type of template to select, keep the following in mind:

    • OAuth and OIDC are most commonly used by consumer applications and services so users do not need to sign up for a new user name and password. "Sign in with Google," or "Log in with Facebook" are examples of OAuth protocols you are likely familiar with. You might also use OAuth if your application is consumed on a mobile device.
    • SAML is most commonly used by businesses to allow their users to access services they pay for. Salesforce and Gmail are examples of service providers an employee could gain access to after completing a SAML sign on. SAML templates can also be used for web applications created and used within your organization.
    • PingAccess templates can be used to apply access policy to Web and API applications.
    • If an environment is offline or if a PingCentral administrator has set the environment status to Disabled, you will be unable to select a disabled or offline environment for template creation.
  3. Select the template you want to use, or the existing application you want to add to PingCentral and click Next.
