Datastores represent external systems where user attributes and other data are stored. Once defined, you can configure PingFederate to retrieve user attributes from datastores for contract fulfillment and token authorization in various use cases. PingFederate supports a wide variety of database servers and directory servers. As needed, you or developers at your organization can create custom drivers through the PingFederate SDK for connecting to other kind of data repositories, such as flat files or SOAP-connected databases. For more information, refer to the Javadoc for the CustomDataSourceDriver interface, the file for a sample implementation, and the SDK developer's guide for build and deployment information.


The Javadoc for PingFederate and the sample implementation are located under the <pf_install>/pingfederate/sdk directory.
