New features

Ticket ID Description
PASS-939 In addition to seeing the list of applications managed within PingCentral, administrators can see all of the applications that exist in connected PingFederate environments. This enhanced view makes it easy for administrators to review application configurations, and quickly save the configurations as templates or add them directly to PingCentral without going through the Add Application wizard.
PASS-1115 Administrators can filter their application lists by environment, template, application owner, integration type (OAuth and OIDC or SAML), management type (managed or unmanaged), or by using any combination of these filters.
PASS-1318 Administrators can restrict application owners from promoting their applications to specific environments. Protected environments display shield icons next to their names within PingCentral.
PASS-1469 Administrators and application owners can change the templates associated with SAML applications, rather than creating new applications using different SAML templates. Attribute mappings will likely need to be recreated before the application is promoted.
PASS-1525 Administrators can run PingCentral as a Linux systemv service, a Linux systemd service, or a Windows service.
PASS-1826 Administrators can configure PingCentral to use the MySQL relational database management system instead of using the default H2 database.
PASS-1832 The ACS URL is used to promote SAML applications instead of the base URL.
PASS-2016 Certificates are no longer required to promote SAML applications that do not require SP certificates.
PASS-2158 Administrators and application owners can sort their application lists by modified date or application name.
PASS-2203 After application owners promote their SAML applications, the SSO endpoint URL displays on the Promotion Details window and is available for them to give to their service providers.


Administrators can use the Linux or Windows upgrade utility to upgrade from PingCentral version 1.0.1 to version 1.2.0. PingCentral cannot be upgraded directly from version 1.0.0 to 1.2.0.
PASS-2925 When adding environments, users who select the Skip Verification option and enter passwords with more than 32 characters receive data integrity violation errors.

Resolved issues
