When the artifact binding is enabled as one of the allowable bindings on the Allowable SAML Bindings screen, you must provide at least one artifact resolution service (ARS) endpoint on the Artifact Resolver Locations screen. This is the location where PingFederate sends back-channel requests to resolve artifacts received from the SP.

  1. Enter the ARS endpoint URL to the URL field.
    You may enter a relative path (begin with a forward slash) if you have provided a base URL on the General Info screen.
  2. Optional: Enter an integer to the Index field for this ACS endpoint.
    The administrative console automatically assigns an index value for each ARS endpoint, starting from 0. If you want to define your own index values, you must make sure the index values are unique.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Optional: Repeat to add additional ARS endpoints.

    When specifying multiple ARS endpoints, each endpoint must share the same transport protocol. That is, if one endpoint uses HTTPS, then all must use HTTPS. Similarly, if one endpoint uses HTTP, then all must use HTTP.

If you are editing an existing connection, you may reconfigure any ARS endpoints.
