On the Field Configuration screen, create a new or modify an existing local identity field.

  1. Enter an identifier under ID.

    Note that you cannot change the identifier of an existing field.

  2. Enter a name under Label.

    This is the field name that users see on the registration and profile management pages.

  3. Select one of the following input controls from the list under Type.
    • Checkbox
    • Checkbox Group
    • Date
    • Dropdown
    • Email
    • Phone
    • Text
    • Hidden
  4. Select whether this field should appear on the registration page, the profile management page, or both under Applies To.

    Applicable only if both registration and profile management are enabled on the Profile Info screen. Both pages are selected by default.

    If only registration (or profile management) is enabled, all fields, with the exception of hidden fields, are shown on the registration page (or the profile management page).

  5. Optional: Select the relevant parameters under Parameters.

    You can make a non-hidden field mandatory or read-only. You can also configure PingFederate not to record values from this field in logs.

  6. Optional: Enter a value under Default Value.

    Specifying a default value can streamline the registration process. This is the default value of the field unless another value is specified in the authentication policy (see Configuring local identity mapping).

    Not shown if you have chosen an input control of Checkbox group, Email, Phone, or Hidden, or the Read-Only parameter.

  7. Add the applicable predefined value (or values) under Options.

    Applicable and required only if you have chosen Checkbox Group or Dropdown as the input control.

  8. Click Done.

    The administrative console brings back the Field screen, where you can configure other options and save your changes.
