PingFederate provides a configuration-migration tool that can be used for scripting the transfer of administrative-console configurations and configuration property files from one PingFederate server to another; for example, from a test environment to production. The tool may also be used to manage certificates for the target server.

The command-line utility, configcopy in the <pf_install>/pingfederate/bin directory, uses PingFederate's built-in Connection Management Service in conjunction with an internal Web Service to export and import connections and other configurations, and to obtain lists (see Connection Management Services).


The Connection Management Service must be activated for both the source and target servers before the configcopy tool can be used (see Configuring service authentication).


For security reasons, the Connection Management Service should be disabled whenever it is not in use.
