As an application owner, you focus on creating applications. You do not often have time to learn how to integrate SSO and access management to protect your applications, and would prefer that your IAM Administrator handle it for you.

You also need to test your application with authentication and authorization policies in a variety of different environments before deploying it to your users. Promoting, testing, and tweaking can be time-consuming, especially if you have to rely on others to promote your applications for you.


  • Makes it possible for you to add user authentication and authorization support to your applications in a few simple steps.
  • Allows you to promote your applications yourself, when you are ready, rather than submitting a request and waiting for someone else to promote them for you.
  • Provides a central monitoring location for greater visibility into applications across deployment life cycles.
  • Minimizes the risk of promoting applications with vulnerable security policies within your organization.

Extensive training is not required to use PingCentral. However, for the best possible experience, become familiar with how the platform works before getting started.

How PingCentral works

In PingCentral, IAM Administrators build best-practice security configuration OAuth (Open Authorization), OIDC (OpenID Connect), and SAML SP templates, which you apply to your application. Then, you promote your application to the appropriate development environment.

Here's how it works:

  • IAM Administrators create standardized OAuth, OIDC, and SAML SP templates based on best-practice configurations.
  • You select the appropriate OAuth, OIDC, or SAML SP template for your application, and a wizard guides you through the process of applying security configurations to it.
  • When you’re ready, you can promote your application to the appropriate development environment to test it and ensure it’s working correctly. You can also promote it directly to the production environment if your permissions allow.
